Hosted by the UCLA Chapter of American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE)
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
UCLA Boelter Penthouse, Samueli School
Use NW elevator in Boelter Hall (Elevator #137). 8th Floor.
Join Fast Company writer and bestselling author Charles Fishman for a deep dive into the wonderful world of water and hear amazing stories about the people and projects providing clean, safe water in America and around the world. In a country with an abundance of clean water, available 24/7 and for less than a penny a gallon, are we missing a bigger picture? What happens when the water runs out.
Hosted by the UCLA Chapter of ASCE we’ll also discuss the state of America’s infrastructure, where the jobs will be in the water industry and the business opportunities available in cleaning water.
Join us as Charles takes us on a journey to cities who went to the abyss of massive water issues only to pull themselves back with smart, innovative and economical water management solutions.
Read the book and join us for a lively discussion about water and the engineers and workers who clean it, deliver it, and then take it away in the Los Angeles Basin and around the world.
