Key Take-aways:

  • Extreme weather events, crumbling infrastructure and emerging contaminants are impacting water quality and placing new demands on our utilities and water systems.
  • Atmospheric water generation (AWG) is maturing and could soon prove to be an essential complement to existing water resources.
