Clean, fresh water is an essential resource that has been dwindling at an alarming rate over the past few years. The importance of conserving and recycling water will be the topic for this event. In particular, examples of sound practices in architecural design will be described that have implications on Silicon Valley and all of California in this severe "drought state" and state of mind. Please come join us for Rinaldo Veseliza's fascinating talk with real world examples of what cities and businesses can do and are doing with proper planning, design, and communication.
