In a new book, former manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority Pat Mulroy says we’re facing a tough global reality when it comes to water. Growth, urbanization, and the effects of climate change mean we have to find new ways to manage a resource she says most Americans simply take for granted. Mulroy is coming to Utah, and she joins Doug Wednesday to explain what’s at stake, and how creating a shared vision for our water future is more important than ever.

Pat Mulroy is a Senior Fellow with the Brooking Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program as well as with UNLV's Boyd School of Law. She's editor of the book The Water Problem: Climate Change and Water Policy in the United States. [Independent Booksellers|Amazon]
