“The Coming Revolution in Urban Water” starts fall season of free Bay Currents talks

Bay Currents‘ fall 2014 season of free talks on natural history and environmental issues, emphasizing positive solutions, is moving to a new day and larger room: second Tuesdays at St. Albans Parish Hall, 1501 Washington (at Curtis, one block north of Solano). Refreshments 7 PM, talks promptly at 7:30 PM.

Sept. 9, UC Berkeley Prof. David Sedlak speaks on “The Coming Revolution in Urban Water.” He will summarize the three revolutions that brought safe, clean water that made cities liveable, and outline the fourth — change needed for the Bay Area, and civilization, to enjoy safe, drought-proof water systems friendly to nature and vibrant urban life.

Prof. David Sedlak is author of the recent book “Water 4.0,” director of UC Berkeley’s Institute for Environmental Science and Engineering, and deputy director of the National Science Foundation’s Center for Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt).
