This year marks the start of an annual examination of possible solutions.  Ever heard of desalination?  We know  it can be done, but can it produce enough, fast enough, cheap enough, safely enough without causing more harm than good.  If you already know the answers, then maybe you can afford to put off learning about “solutions” until next year.  If not, you owe it to yourself to come to this year’s Forum and be a part of the solution.  Your questions of the Experts can be heard literally around the world.  The entire 6 hours will stream live via the World Wide Web (www.) for folks not fortunate enough to be in Washington County that day.  The cost is only $25.00 per person at the door. Plus, live participants will get lunch included and be eligible for door prizes at the end of the day.
