Bob Hitchner of Nexus eWater will address recent changes that are moving California toward more use of Alternative Water Sources for outdoor irrigation and other non-potable water applications. These changes are driven by a multitude of factors: The current drought, long-term climate forecasts, technology, architecture and design, our elected officials, and the stewards of the California Building Code. Bob was Nexus' first full-time US employee, and he has seen the change up close and personal, from Sacramento to Fresno to San Diego.
Nexus eWater was recently recognized at the White House Water Summit for its on-site water and energy recycling technology, which has been adopted by a mega-development, River Islands, in Lathrop CA. But before then, Fresno's own Gary McDonald Homes made local news with its decision to incorporate the Nexus solution in a number of its new homes that will come to market later this spring.
Come with your thoughts, questions and doubts about the role that Alternate Water Sources can play here in Fresno and around California.
