Have you ever wondered where your tap water comes from? Ever wondered how the City of San Diego provides clean water for citizens? Join us as we learn about the water purification process and discuss contemporary ethical issues related to clean water. After a presentation by a representative of the San Diego Public Utilities Speakers Bureau, three respondents from different disciplines will discuss the implications of this work, highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of Steven Johnson’s book as well as new challenges of the water crisis in our world today. We encourage all who are reading The Ghost Map to attend! There will be plenty of time for questions and comments and we’d like to hear from you.

With a presentation from a representative of the San Diego Public Utilities Speakers Bureau and USD faculty panel including:

Mary Sue Lowery, PhD, Biology

Emily Reimer-Barry , PhD, Theology and Religious Studies

Annette Taylor, PhD, Psychological Sciences
