Thu
Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) Zoom Webinar
May 13 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Albuquerque’s Water Security Plan: Lessons for the Quad Cities?
 

Albuquerque believed it had a vast aquifer to supply it with water in perpetuity until a U.S. Geological Survey revealed the aquifer was not only much smaller than thought, but shrinking fast. Albuquerque had gone from perceived water security to a real water crisis, virtually overnight. Rick Shean, Water Rights Manager for the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Authority, will detail the steps taken to secure prompt action from local officials and buy-in from the public to tackle the emergency, discuss the plans put in place to ensure success, and provide insights for other communities in the southwest in a free Zoom Webinar presented by the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) on May 13, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. The Zoom link is posted in the “Next Meeting” section at  www.cwagaz.org .

Shean has 20 years of experience in the water sector in the Southwest, with a background in ground water quality, watershed and erosion studies, and water resource planning and policy. He is responsible for all aspects of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority’s source-water storage and diversions, and is also involved in long-term planning to ensure the resiliency of the community’s water resources portfolio.

The Assault on Education, Voting Rights and Women’s Rights
Join us as we host State Representatives Athena Salman and Judy Schwiebert. The Arizona State Legislature has been a battleground this legislative session with the razor-thin Republican-led house and senate passing bills that undermine education, elections, and doctor-patient confidentiality. Come and hear from those on the front lines and learn what we need to do to flip AZ truly blue in 2022.
