Spotlight on Water: Managing Our Most Precious Resource

April 6, 2016
7:00 pmto8:30 pm

Flint, Michigan’s ongoing crisis has raised concerns about something we take for granted: clean water.

Jim Florio, former governor of New Jersey, will introduce the topic by offering his perspective as a former congressman and governor when he successfully championed an array of landmark environmental protections. The speakers will address key issues about the health of our water systems from global to local, including whether the federal framework that governs drinking water and wastewater discharges is robust and current, and why we still have water pollution and contaminated drinking water in 21st-century America. They will describe the state of New Jersey’s drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure, what people are doing to ensure its reliability, and identify local water managers and their roles.

This roundtable is part of the Princeton Environmental Film Festival. Chris Sturm will be one of the speakers.
