Water haves and have-nots

Water SecurityIs there enough water to maintain Arizona’s way of life?
Sarah Porter
, director of Arizona State University’s Kyl Center for Water Policy at Morrison Institute, says Arizonans do not all enjoy the same degree of water certainty. Who in Arizona is vulnerable to shortages may surprise you. 

At 10 a.m. Monday, March 22, Porter will present “Arizona’s Water Haves and Have Nots” – a discussion of which parts of the state have long-term, resilient water supplies and which lack them. Porter will also propose solutions to ensure water certainty across the state.

Established in 2015, the Kyl Center for Water Policy promotes research, analysis, collaboration and dialogue to build consensus on sound water stewardship for Arizona and the West.

Sarah Porter 1Before becoming the Kyl Center’s inaugural director, Porter was executive director of Audubon Arizona and director of the National Audubon Society’s Western Rivers Project, a multi-state initiative aimed at protecting and restoring important river habitats in the Intermountain West. Porter also serves as deputy director of ASU’s Future H2O, which works to focus ASU’s water expertise on solving real world water challenges, local and global.

Porter graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree and obtained her Juris Doctor from Arizona State University.
