The first talk addressed drinking water and water supply. The second talk, coming in July, will center on dealing with recent flooding. And the final talk in August addresses hurricane protection and response.

Today, we focus on that first conversation on Houston's water quality and supply. It was held June 7, 2016.

Houston Matters producer Edel Howlin moderated the discussion among several panelists: Amanda Brock, CEO of Water Standard, a Houston-based global water treatment company that specializes in desalinization; Lisa Gonzalez, vice president and COO of Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC); and Jeff Taebel, director of community and environmental planning for the Houston-Galveston Area Council and an expert on regional sustainability issues.

Edel began the conversation by asking Amanda Brock about the state of Houston's drinking water.
