This web page provides the schedule of presentations from the 2010 Water Showcase.

2010 Water Conservation Showcase Speakers

Save Water by Going Paperless!

Did you know that as much as five gallons of water is required for each pound of paper manufactured? Because of this, making copies of the presentation materials is inconsistent with an event on water conservation. We will instead make the slides available in PDF format. They will be linked to each speaker's name or to a presentation title below. You can download the slides, but are asked to not re-use the materials without the permission of the authors. Contact Ryan Stroupe of the Pacific Energy Center and he will forward any requests for re-use of the slides. We also ask that you resist the urge to print the slides.
