Homelessness is one of the most challenging environmental justice issues of our time, and is on the rise in California. One consequence has been a decline in water quality, creating challenges for agencies and organizations responsible for protecting it. People experiencing homelessness are only one of many sources of contaminants in our waterways. As part of a new "Rising Waters" initiative, this event showcases student research on the challenging intersection of environmental, social and economic factors that impact water quality. Come see three student teams present and answer questions about their mapping study, case study, and knowledge map, with the hope of finding new solutions that benefit people experiencing homelessness and ensure high water quality for everyone.
