Is California’s drought a window of opportunity for the fourth revolution in urban water? David Sedlak raised this pertinent question during his keynote address at the 2014 BERC Resources Roundtable on California’s Drought: Challenges and Opportunities.
Everyone knows there’s a drought. We read about it in the news, we see dramatic photos of dry riverbeds, we marvel at the lack of rain. Less visible though, is another problem, a big problem. Currently 1 million Californians in marginalized communities do not have access to clean water.
From the first panel in BERC Resources Roundtable 2014, we learned that there is not a direct linkage between water demand and population growth. If managed carefully, slow and strategic growth can coincide with even a decline in water demand.
The second panel of the BERC Resources Roundtable 2014 focused on how the California drought is affecting communities, consumers and business on a local level. The panel, moderated by UC Berkeley Professor Isha Ray, featured representatives from the public sector as well as the private sector.
Spring BERC has finally arrived. The BERC Resources Roundtable and Cleanweb Hackathon 2.0 are coming up this week. Bring your energy and resourcefulness to these great events.
