Bill Stowe to present Immersed in Water

Bill StoweWater, living so close to the mightiest river in the country we think we know all about it. And while we do know a lot about it, there is much more to learn.

In the presentation, Immersed in Water, Bill Stowe, CEO and General Manager of Des Moines Water Works, emphasizes the central role water has in each of our lives, beginning before birth and throughout our entire lives, at individual, community and economic levels.

He will appear at Scott Community College’s Kahl Educational Center 10th Floor from 4 – 5:30 p.m. on May 7.

Stowe pays special attention on water as a vital component in our economic development, history and our future. An appreciation for the challenges faced in both water quality and water quantity underscore the active role each of us as individuals can play in promoting greater stewardship of water in its many forms.

Participants will be encouraged to be both better informed consumers of water and also more engaged actors in the discussions necessary to improve our water resources as a community.
