About this event

GDG Tucson launched a sustainability series this year. Join us each month through the end of 2021 as we discover how technology can be used to achieve the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs).

This month's virtual workshop addresses SDG #6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Climate change and persistent drought threaten the water security of states throughout the Colorado River basin - including Arizona. Additionally, water quality issues have surfaced in the major metropolitan areas of Arizona, including TCE, 1,4 Dioxane, and PFAS contamination of groundwater supplies.

Join us for a dive into the data and a look at some possible uses of IoT sensors to understand and deal with these critical issues in the desert southwest.
