The Future of Fresh Water

February 17, 2010
5:15 PM - 8:30 PM

Federal Reserve Bank
1801 Allen Parkway
Houston, UT 77019

Our distinguished panel will be moderated by Lane Sloan, former president of Shell Chemical, and includes:
- Dennis Dimick, Executive Environmental Editor for National Geographic;
- Dr. Danny Reible, Chair of Environmental Health and Engineering at UT-Austin;
- David Klanecky, Global R&D Director for Chemical, Water & Process Solutions at Dow Chemical; and

Some areas of the World are already experiencing significant problems with the availability of Clean Fresh Water. With the world population expanding and the standard of living increasing significantly in various parts of the world, the demand for Fresh water in developing countries is expected to increase by 50% by the year 2025. Closer to home in the US, California and the Southwest including parts of Texas are regularly experiencing drought conditions, while a number of major aquifers are being depleted.

Our panel will highlight the most pressing issues and outline what we are facing in the future. It's an issue that eventually may effect us all, and a conversation you won't want to miss.
