Bruce Rittmann, PhD, Thomas Houlon, Jim Holway, PhD, and Paul Westerhoff, PhD at The Biodesign Institute, ASU
Bruce Rittmann, PhD, a member of Spirit of the Senses, and a world leading researcher on cleaning water with microbes, assembled a panel to discuss the future of water in California and Arizona. There was a lot of information and some surprising details revealed at this salon on ‘Implications of Drought in California and Arizona’. The panel consisted of some of the most informed individuals in Arizona who research water solutions. The panelists discussed how Arizona has prepared and has more water reserves than California, though a prolonged drought would make necessary some dramatic changes in Arizona water use.
