FREE Virtual Public Webinar

The future is likely to bring a hotter, drier climate, resulting in projected reductions in Colorado River flows. Population growth in the state will create an increased demand for water. We need to ensure that water is shared equitably among stakeholders, including tribal communities, municipal users, agriculture, and industry.  And we need to take care that water is available to protect ecological systems and threatened riparian landscapes.

Join us to hear experts Kathy Jacobs of UArizona, State Senator Kirsten Engel and City of Tucson’s Andrew Greenhill provide a thoughtful, science-based introduction to local and state water issues. Registration requested but not required.

How is the changing climate expected to impact both water supply and water demand?
    Kathy Jacobs – Director of the UArizona Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions
    (CCASS) and a professor in the UArizona Department of Environmental Science. National Level
    expert with more than 20 years in AZ water policy.

How will Tucson ensure sustainable, safe, and affordable water supplies?
     Andrew Greenhill – Intergovernmental Relations Manager for the City of Tucson and
     Tucson Water.

What current legislative efforts are working toward a safe water future?  

     Kirsten Engel – LD 10 State Senator, UArizona Professor of Law, member of the Senate Natural
     Resources, Energy and Water committee.

The program will be live streamed on Facebook.com/lwvgreatertucson and available in the following week on the League YouTube channel accessible from www.LWVTUCSON.org.
