New Mexico Science Cafe: Bottled Water or Tap?


Don't Miss the December Science Café:

BOTTLED WATER OR TAP?

Saturday, December 17
10:00am-12noon
New Mexico PBS Studio
1130 University Blvd. NE

Note: due to strong interest, this show is now SOLD OUT



The geography of your drinking water is connected to not only our tap water, but also a large majority of bottled water. Much of bottled water comes from drought stricken California, who also depends on the Colorado River for supply. What are the risks of supporting the bottled water industry when it allows for water to travel so far from our regional watersheds and reduces citizen dependence on the local water utility?

Come to the December New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of a PBS show and join a discussion with Molly Blumhoefer, Sustainability Project Manager and faculty member at CNM. Blumhoefer will discuss the sources of bottled water versus the sources of tap water over quality, environmental impacts as well as the socioeconomic risks of privatization.
