The Innovative Cities Lecture Series
Water and Environmental Justice: Lessons Learned and the Path Forward presentation by Sri Vedachalam, Director, Water Equity and Climate Resilience at Corvias Infrastructure Solutions, Inc.
As we built our nation’s modern infrastructure during the past century, we forgot to account for the people, especially those from our disadvantaged communities. What does true environmental justice look like? A well-functioning water infrastructure is key to the nation’s well-being and that in turn is dependent on a thriving and engaged community.
