Drinking water quality Forum
12/09/2018 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
At the September Quaker Forum, Rob Dewhirst will introduce discussion by speaking on “Drinking water quality: safe or too safe?”
Rob is an international water supply engineer with extensive experience in New Zealand and countries in Southeast Asia. He will discuss drinking water standards and the reasons for Christchurch’s recently chlorinated water, raising broader questions about risk, risk perception, reasonable levels of regulation and the balance of resource allocation between different social needs.
