Will there be enough water for all of us in the next 100 years? What is the current quality of our waterways? How can it improve and why? The Shell Center for Sustainability at Rice University considers these and other questions on water in the upcoming conference “Water in the Houston Metabolism – Houston’s Water Needs and Water Quality for this Century”. National and local experts come together to address questions about water, one of our vital resources, and Houston’s sustainable development, growth, natural environment, water, health, and the policies that can make a difference.
