Lunchtime Forum

The population of the Bay Area will grow significantly in the coming decades and it is imperative that we add more homes in order to accommodate. That growth comes with a cost, however: water use. Our region is no stranger to drought conditions; will we have enough water to meet future demand? Where will it come from? What top-down policies must be implemented across the Bay Area to ensure that people and the environment will have the water they need to not just survive, but thrive? Hear from experts whose research answers these critical questions and offers the solutions necessary for a water resilient future that can accommodate all. This program is part of an ongoing project that has been made possible in part by grants from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and the Mary A. Crocker Trust.
