IN HONOR OF:
The 3rd Annual Massachusetts Water Forum will dig into issues concerning water in our commonwealth. Overall, we have plenty of water in our state, however given that many parts of the US and the world are experiencing drought, the pressure for water will increase. What does that mean for the state of Massachusetts? How do we determine right or privilege?
