Start Date
End Date
Addressing demands for environmental justice usually requires "greening" of our cities. Desert cities face the contradiction of providing green infrastructure without increasing water consumption. This requires innovation and reconsideration of how we define, collect, clean, and store water, and where and how it is used.
