480 South Broad Street
Get a glimpse into the innovative and impactful research taking place at Penn Arts & Sciences at the Penn Science and Lightbulb Cafés. The lecture series is free and open to the public and takes place in Center City at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
Water quality issues seem to make headlines on a regular basis, with issues including failing water infrastructure and pollution from industrial and agricultural runoff. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have people questioning whether their water is safe to drink. Howard Neukrug, former Commissioner and CEO of Philadelphia Water, Professor of Practice in Earth and Environmental Science, and Executive Director of The Water Center at Penn, will put these startling headlines into perspective, explain what consumers should know about the water coming out of their tap, and share promising innovations and ingenuity in the water sector.
