Arizona's landmark Groundwater Management Act turned 40 last year and the WRRC marked the occasion by focusing the 2020 annual conference on the legacy of the Act, current groundwater challenges, and potential future pathways. Building on this foundation, the authors of the 2021 Arroyo developed a comprehensive overview of groundwater management in Arizona that looks back over 40 years and ahead toward 2060 and beyond. The presentation will highlight key sections of the Arroyo as reference points for discussion.
Brown Bag Seminar - How Beer Can Save Rivers
Chase Saraiva, Head Brewer, Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company
Water, such a vital component to our lives and the environment around us, is also the main ingredient in beer. As we dive into what it takes to make beer and the role water has in this fermented beverage we’ll also investigate some creative ways we are able to conserve water inside the brewery and out. From involvement with local farmers, a maltster, and a charitable environmental organization to working with recycled wastewater, all it takes is an idea, a conversation, and little creativity to make an impact.
Chase Saraiva graduated from Westminster College with a B.S. in Molecular Biology and has been brewing professionally for 5 years. Chase is currently the Head Brewer of Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company in Gilbert where he oversees the production of a variety of specialty ales and lagers. Chase and the Arizona Wilderness Brewing team regularly forage for ingredients throughout Arizona and work with local farmers to display the diverse landscape of the state and highlight Arizona's agricultural community.
