R6730: Water is for fighting over in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Should water be released from a reservoir to generate electricity or be stored and used later for agriculture? Should river flows be maintained to preserve ecosystems or does domestic water consumption take precedence? In this activity based class, you will put on the hat of a water manager and make decisions to the questions above. We'll learn about the different ways we use water and how these uses can be in conflict. This class will give you a greater appreciation of water, and the challenges of managing this precious resource.
