PROVO — The Utah Valley Earth Forum, a citizens group promoting environmental stewardship, is hosting a public event asking the question, "Is Utah running out of water?"
With a third year of drought affecting the majority of the state, the nonprofit organization decided to bring in a couple of experts to broker the discussion.
The 7 p.m. meeting on Wednesday will examine the notion of water scarcity in the context of climate change and whether a "warming planet" is a valid concern or a hoax.
Organizers also plan to have a discussion on water quality and if the state is being prudent in its management of water resources.
The forum features Eric Millis, director of the Utah Division of Water Resources, and Zach Frankel, executive director of the Utah Rivers Council.
Residents are invited to attend the free event in Room 201 at the Provo Public Library, 550 N. University Ave., where light refreshments will be served.
James Westwater, the forum's chairman, said active participation is encouraged and residents are invited to ask questions.
