Description

Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "How Thirsty Are You?  Quenching the World’s Thirst with Wastewater," a talk by Daniel Gerrity, assistant professor, civil and environmental engineering and construction, UNLV

Rapid population growth is placing a tremendous strain on water supplies, but water conservation is simply insufficient to solve this widespread problem. Communities are now turning to treated wastewater as a new water supply for their people, businesses, and local environment. This presentation explains why wastewater will – and should – be coming to a tap near you. The presentation will also highlight numerous examples of water reuse projects throughout the world, including one of the largest, right here in Las Vegas.
