Agnes W.H. Tan Science Symposium (Previous Event)

What’s in our drinking water? 

Friday, March 25, 2022 - 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Viterbo University, La Crosse, Wis.

Where does our drinking water come from and why does that matter? Recently, we've been seeing entire communities needing to avoid tap water in their very own homes. As contaminants are making their way into our drinking water, we are finding it hard to keep them out. With bottled water being less sustainable and also containing contaminants, we want to come together to learn the science behind how to keep our water clean. This symposium strives to empower attendees with scientific knowledge and inspire hopeful paths towards cleaner water. 

Symposium speakers and breakout leaders are experts in their fields from academia; federal, state and local agencies; tribes; nonprofits; and private industry.
