Panel Discussion 7 User Forum: Averting a National Water Crisis

Wednesday, 3 April 2013: 1:45 PM-3:30 PM
Auditorium (AAAS Building)

Panelists will explore the reality and causes of the impending global and US water crisis, and what to do about it. With population growth and economic development stressing our water supplies, an aging water infrastructure, and a changing climate, the need for an integrated approach to science and services for water resources has never been greater; yet our nation's ability to meet that demand is inadequate.
