The San Antonio Clean Technology Forum, formed in 2008 to promote progressive energy and sustainability policies in the city and region, is hosting a major luncheon forum on:

The Clean Technology Forum event will be held in conjunction with public hearings (that same morning and/or afternoon) at City Council chambers of the Texas House Interim Committee on Natural Resources chaired by state Rep. Allan Ritter, R-Nederland.
Previous SA Clean Technology forums on critical energy and resource issues have generated extensive press coverage and quickly sold out.
The San Antonio Clean Technology Forum is one of the fastest growing, non-profit civic organizations in South Texas. For membership information, please visit www.sacleantech.org/apply.
In summary, this program is being developed to present a number of critically important regional water supply issues that are not well known and understood in our community. There are few issues more important to San Antonio’s future than that of the supply and management of our water resources.
