Yuma, Arizona - Please join Justin Case as he interviews Sarah Wisdom of the Yuma County Library who offers Library event happenings.
Water in Arizona
Water is necessary for life, but as supply shrinks, choices must be made about who is given access to water and who is not. Communities across Arizona are going dry. This means that some residents may have no choice except to move. How do we decide who gets access to water, and who does not? Should the needs of the many be placed above the needs of the few? How do we address the social and moral issues raised by competition for scarce resources, locally, regionally and nationwide?
On Wednesday, February 12th, Dr. Paul Hirt presents “Water in Arizona: Sustainability, Supply and Demand” at 11:00 a.m. at the Main Library. Join us for a discussion about water in Arizona, sustainability and the supply/demand imbalance. There is no charge to attend.
The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
