Weston Roundtable | Water Sustainability in a Changing World

Water resources are stressed by agriculture, industry, recreation, and ecosystem needs. Changes in supply and demand are driven by population growth, climate, land use change, and energy choices. We discuss the drivers affecting water sustainability and potential solutions. Management of the water cycle has been fragmented— standards for effluent discharge are often disconnected from quality required downstream. Knowledge gaps make integrated management of water resources difficult. Hector De Luca Forum, Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. 4:15 p.m. Cost: Reservation required for lecture and reception; RSVP to allez@wisc.edu. Information: 262-9334, allez@wisc.edu
