About 150 people attended the first New York City Water Summit on April 9th, which was organized by Professors William Becker and Kartik Chandran of the Columbia University Dept. of Earth and Environmental Engineering.
The morning sessions dealt with drinking water issues, while the afternoon sessions concentrated on wastewater treatment. The event had a focus on New York City issues, but also looked at global perspectives and solutions.
Below are some photos of the day’s first speakers.
