AZ Water Research Committee Annual Workshop "Water: The Center of Debate!"

Being in the middle of Arizona's longest drought,  climate change, unpredictable growth, and the ever pending regulatory requirements, many questions have arisen regarding the use of water. With the treatment available, should reclaimed water be used for drinking?, Should the public be entitled to water system information?, and should the government regulate the sales and exchanges of water or should water be on the free market like other natural resources? Join the AZ Water Association as they debate these topics and the "what if's" associated with them.
