Everyone needs clean water and it’s often taken for granted. The average American household uses 100 to 176 gallons of water each day, while the average family from a developing country uses five gallons a day. We generally don’t consider where it comes from, how it gets to us or what it costs. California’s governor declared a statewide drought in June and there is discussion of mandated rationing if conditions don’t improve. Calit2@UCI researchers are working to avert the looming crisis.


Join us November 18 to discover how experts are tapping
into technlogy to solve our water demands.

5:40 p.m. - Special viewing of "The America Southwest: Are We Running Dry?"
