The SF Bay Delta is at the crossroads of either being destroyed or being saved. The water management plans being considered will determine the future health of this important geographic resource. The health of the community, the ecology, the wildlife, and water quality hinge on the upcoming decisions. In todays session we will explore just what the delta is, what factors affect it, why it is so important, what is the Bay Delta Water Quality Control Plan, and what we, as stewards of the land, should do to make sure the SF Bay delta is properly maintained.
In todays meeting we will go over the various avenues available in Social Media and explore how the EcoGreen Group can utilize them to achieve our goals. We are hoping to get some creative ideas flowing from our members on how we can use these tools.
Join us and participate in the exploration of social media and see if yiou can come up with ideas that can help EGG use these tools.
EGG ended 2016 on a lively note with a presentation about The Conversation our Society needs to have to promote sustainability. To continue the energetic exchange on this subject, the Jan 12, 2017, EGG presentation is going explore:
- The basics of communicating everyday opportunities to share sustainability info with others we meet in our daily travels.
- Group Interaction will round out the session.
To help you share the “golden nuggets” of sustainable wisdom you have with more people in your everyday travels, please join EGG for a dynamic presentation and audience participation.
Reused water is currently used for irrigation, non-potable applications, replenishing aquifers, just to name a few. However, there has been a firm resistance to providing drinking water to the public from water reused from non-potable applications. The issue is not with the technologies but with the perception of "Toilet-to-Tap” water by the public. In some places, reduced water availability in tandem with an increase in population may require a fundamental shift in thinking if we want to ensure everyone’s' drinking water requirements will be met in the future. I will cover questions such as:
- Learn where recycled water is using used for meeting
drinking water requirements.
- Learn why we all have been drinking recycled water for
millions of years.
- Learn why people have been taught to fear drinking
- Learn why the water resources of today might not be
enough to meet the needs of tomorrow.
Come join us for this special EcoGreen Group meeting!
