Industry Leaders Seek Solutions for the California Drought

By Michelle Segrest, Reporting for Empowering Pumps

In May, I was proud to be a participant and speaker at the historic Water Technology & Funding Summit in Pasadena, California. This was an amazing gathering of thought leaders, politicians, decision makers, technology experts, universities and legislators spearheaded by the Water Technology Hub.

The “disruptive collaboration” that ensued has sparked many innovative partnerships and solutions toward the growing threat caused by the severe drought in California and other arid regions of the world.

“We live in a time where there are growing concerns regarding the scarcity of water,” said Andrew Yeghnazar, Water Technology Hub’s Founding Chairman. “No matter where you are, no matter what your background is or your occupation, water remains a basic necessity of life. The great news is it seems new groups with the same passion are popping up all over the place. This is clearly an area where if we work together the sum of all our efforts will truly be greater than if we attempt to develop a solution on our own.”

The Water Technology Hub’s mission is to engage innovative thinking, target effective investments, launch collaborative initiatives and commercialize new water technologies.
