Episode 21: Water Infrastructure with Will Sarni (Water Foundry, LLC)

Today's guest is Will Sarni, an expert in water technology and corporate water strategies, who recently wrote a report for Deloitte on the state of U.S. water infrastructure.

Will tells us how bad the problem is and how technology, public and private spending, and citizen engagement can help solve it.
