Sustainability Speaker Series - FREE Presentation

Local Author Focuses on Environmental Impact of New Hydro Technology

Jim Rousmaniere, author of “Water Connections: What Fresh Water Means to Us, What We Mean to Water” presents the effects of new hydro technology as part of the American Precision Museum’s free Sustainability Speaker Series.

Rousmaniere’s research-based presentation explains how newer forms of hydro from the latest power-in-a-pipe technology to low impact certification and distribution schemes can be more environmentally-friendly and so play a role in addressing climate change.
