Media Advisory: ‘Quality Water from Every Tap’ Workshop

Aging infrastructure and changing environmental conditions place the quality of U.S. drinking water at risk. On Nov. 21 and 22, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a workshop to explore options for increasing water quality in systems that do not meet current drinking water standards.

The workshop will focus on communities that lack adequate resources and expertise because they are small or declining in size. Experts from academia, government, associations, and state water boards will delve into existing scientific knowledge on this issue from a variety of disciplines, exploring topics from social science to technological development.

DETAILS:
Thursday, Nov. 21, 8:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. EST
Friday, Nov. 22, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST
