El Niño: Expert Panel Confirmed

It's the question on everyone's asking: when are the rains coming?

We can’t promise we have the answer, but we do have some experts who know their stuff about our global rains, including monsoons, the Californian drought and the science behind it.

Join us for a panel discussion after the San Francisco Premiere of Monsoon at the 5th Bay Area Science Festival. Filmed over the course of India's 2013 monsoon season, the filmmakers chased the monsoon on its annual journey through the country, discovering the effect it has on the land and its people. The result is a beautifully cinematic film that captures our engagement with the natural world.

We’re delighted to confirm our expert speaker for a discussion to be held after the film:

Alice Towey, Civil Engineer, East Bay Municipal Utility District’s Water Resources Planning Division

Alice has over fifteen years of experience in water supply, water recycling, and wastewater. Prior to joining EBMUD, Alice spent two years working as a Basic Sanitation volunteer in Bolivia with the U.S. Peace Corps. Towey was a cofounder of the San Francisco fundraising committee for Water For People, a nonprofit that works to establish clean drinking water and sanitation in the developing world.
