Water is the most crucial natural resources—it impacts the economy, the environment and without it, we'd probably be dead. So, why not learn about how to protect it?

The Central Arizona Project, the University of Arizona, and a handful of other organizations—including KXCI and the Southern Arizona Water Users Association—are hosting a forum on water sustainability this Friday, and they want the community to really pay attention. 

"We’re on the cusp of major decisions about water and it’s critical that a large sector of the population is involved," says Mitch Basefsky, CAP external communications for Pima and Pinal counties, in an email. The groups especially want youth to be a part of the conversation. "Achieving a sustainable future for Tucson and our environs will require continuing communications and collaboration among a broad range of stakeholders and interest groups."

"The perspectives and involvement of our younger advocates is welcome and necessary to the long-term viability of our community," he adds. "This forum presents a wonderful opportunity for youth to learn and contribute to the water future of Southern Arizona."

Director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources Tom Buschatzke will be the keynote speaker, followed by a panel with moderator Sharon Megdal, director of the UA College of Agriculture and Life Science's Water Resources Research Center. 

The forum is happening Friday, Nov. 6 from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Tucson Convention Center's Leo Rich Theater. It is a free event, and there will be free breakfast and parking. Couldn't hurt, right?

You have to  RSVP, so call 621-4311 or email  wrrc@email.arizona.edu.
