Can technology help ease California’s drought crisis? Water stress hitting California and other states is prompting venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to see opportunity in an underpriced commodity that is sold in fragmented and heavily regulated markets. There are big information gaps about where our water goes and when, and our state's parched rivers and depleted reservoirs are causing people to pay more attention to usage. The agricultural sector is bracing for a drought on par with the epic one in 1977. Will that drive more investment into water innovation? What lessons can be learned from recent efforts to get electricity suppliers to offer consumers more information about usage patterns? Join this conversation about water technology in the era of weird weather.
