Woman’s City Club will present a public forum November 12 on the potential of regional water technology to become “liquid gold” -- to create good jobs, spur the local economy and protect and maintain the world’s supply of water in a world facing climate change and environmental degradation. Melinda Kruyer, Director of Confluence will moderate the panel discussion.
Confluence is a non-profit working to collaborate across governments, universities, and industries to establish the region as a global leader in sustainable, environmental technology innovation. It is a clean water initiative with potentially great economic and environmental benefits given adequate financial support.
Ms. Kruyer will be joined by Bill Scheyer, president of Skyward, the new Vision 2015 for Northern Kentucky (confirmed); and invited but not yet confirmed: Jim Uber, president of CitiLogics, which applies engineering expertise to problems in the water and wastewater industry and Roy Haught, technology transfer specialist, Environmental Protection Agency Cincinnati Water Cluster Team.
The region is an ideal location for such an initiative. For a century it has had the nation’s top water research facilities. We have the brain power and certainly the water!
Join us November 12 at 6:30 to learn what water technologies have contributed to our region and what their future possibilities can contribute to further sustainability of our resources and our families.
