Once Was Water

November 20, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Followed by a discussion with faculty from UWM School of Freshwater Sciences

Join us in the exploration of this vital frontier of water sustainability. Once Was Water is an upbeat, solutions-oriented documentary that tells the story of how the driest city in America, in the middle of the Mojave desert, leads the United States in sustainable water conservation. The efforts of Las Vegas, in its search for sustainability, have produced important solutions, technological, political, and financial that have on-going global importance.

Co-sponsored by the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences
