Water experts from across the state are talking about local and global issues surrounding our water resources and drinking water/stormwater infrastructure. The program focuses on identifying problems we face with water pollution and conserving our natural and man-made water resources. You’ll learn how water moves from our faucets and drains to the ocean and how the water is impacted along the way.
Three experts will share common challenges, what they’re doing to help, and how you can get involved.
- Ryan Bethea – Oysters Carolina Harker’s Island, North Carolina Oyster Blueprint
- Peter Raabe — American Rivers – Conservation Director, Rivers of Southern Appalachia and the Carolinas
- Francine Durso – North Carolina Environmental Quality, Division of Water Infrastructure
Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase, 6–7 pm. A Q&A will follow the talk. City of Raleigh staff will join the panel discussion to talk about local drinking water and stormwater efforts.
