Is New Jersey’s Water Safe to Drink?
May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Ingrid Reed is joined by a panel of experts, including Commissioner Catherine McCabe of the NJDEP, to discuss whether the water in New Jersey is safe to drink. While having clean water to drink has not been a concern for most people in the state, aging infrastructure and climate-change issues are raising new concerns.
Panelists who will identify the problems and how they are being addressed include:
Catherine McCabe, Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, joined Governor Murphy’s cabinet after serving in leadership roles in federal environmental programs. A lawyer with a science background, she most recently was deputy administrator of EPA Region 2 covering New York and New Jersey.
Chris Sturm, managing director of water and policy for New Jersey Future where she leads a team working to transform the state’s drinking water, wastewater and storm water systems by engaging people, changing state policy, and fostering innovation;
Daniel Van Abs, Rutgers University associate professor of practice for water, science and environment who has over 36 years experience in water resources management and planning in state government, academia and non-profit organizations;
Ingrid Reed is is retired director of the New Jersey Project of Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics.
