October 23, 2019 is the 5th annual "Imagine a Day Without Water" day dedicated to raising awareness and educating Americans about the value of water. Last year more than 1,100 organizations participated in the Imagine a Day Without Water day of action hosted by the Value of Water Campaign, a water industry organization formed to build public and political will for investment in America's water infrastructure through education and engagement. This year the WRRC is observing the occasion with a Brown Bag seminar by ltzchak Kornfeld, Ph.D., of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His presentation, You've Got It All Wrong About Water, will use the conflict over apportionment of the Colorado River to make the case for more involvement by scientific experts in resolving water disputes and formulating long-term solutions for the river. The seminar is cosponsored by the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy.
