Meeker to Moderate at White House Roundtable on Water Innovation

Date: December 15, 2015

WateReuse Executive Director Melissa L. Meeker will be one of the moderators at a White House Roundtable on Water Innovation on Tuesday, December 15.  The roundtable will highlight how an aggressive innovation agenda can help America meet the challenge of a constrained water supply and increase the resilience of businesses and communities as they plan for the impacts of increasingly severe and lengthy droughts.

U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell will offer opening remarks and will announce a new Department of the Interior initiative to spur innovation and investments that support water and conservation solutions.

Interior Deputy Secretary Michael L. Connor will also participate in the roundtable by moderating a panel discussion on technology as a solution to increase water efficiencies, storage and transfers. White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director John Holdren will also provide remarks.

The roundtable will begin at 9:30 a.m. and opening remarks will be webcast live at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
