West Texas A&M University will host a prominent water conservation expert on Tuesday night, as part of its Distinguished Lecture Series.
Dr. David Sedlak is a professor of environmental engineering at UC Berkeley, and he has gained an international reputation for his clear-eyed solutions to a crowded world increasingly threatened by water shortages.
In a 2016 TED talk, Sedlak outlined a four-part plan for rethinking water supply sources in water-starved cities like San Francisco. Dr. Sedlak further expanded on these ideas in his book, Water 4.0.
The professor will speak at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday, at the Alumni Banquet Facility on the WTAMU campus. The event is free. Dr. Sedlak will apply his lifetime’s worth of knowledge to the water problems of the High Plains, where the resources of the Ogallala Aquifer continue to dwindle.
