Councilman Snyder at Spokane Public Radio Talks: Our Water, Our Future Today at 6:30pm
This year’s drought conditions have seriously impacted more than recreational life in the Inland Northwest. Tourist dollars are down in communities that rely on those recreational visits. Crop damage and dry pastures are harsh realities for agriculture. Smoke from various wildfires keeps those with asthma indoors. And many climate specialists believe this is only the beginning of our water-related problems.
Spokane Public Radio will explore what the region-wide drought means for our communities now and in the future at “SPR Talks: Our Water, Our Future.” This community forum takes place today in the Spokane City Hall Council Chambers from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Pannelists for this forum include:
Jon Snyder, Spokane City Councilman
Guy Gregory, Washington Dept. of Ecology Water Resources Program
Rob Lindsay, Spokane County Water Resources Manager
Rachael Paschal Osborn, Center for Environmental Law Senior Policy Adviser
Rick Romero, City of Spokane Utilities Director
