On June 22, 2022, the National Academy of Sciences presents the webinar Climate Conversations: Water Justice — a conversation about access to clean and safe drinking water amidst climate change in the United States. Justin Worland of TIME moderates a conversation between Tirusew Asefa of Tampa Bay Water and Laurel Firestone of California State Water Resources Control Board. Asefa and Firestone discuss how policy and infrastructure address access to drinking water and build resilience to climate change.
“Millions of people in the U.S. currently lack access to clean and safe drinking water, particularly in low-income rural areas and in communities of color.” To compound the problem surrounding drinking water, climate change creates additional threats, including “…droughts that diminish surface water bodies, algal blooms and salt-water intrusion that contaminate water supplies, and floods that overwhelm water treatment facilities.”
