This is the October 30, 2019 hearing on "The Use of Technology and Innovation to Increase Water Security and Enable Economic Development in the West," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Water and Power of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Martha McSally: "As with many sectors of our economy, technology and innovation are playing an increasingly important role in the management of our water resources. Meeting the water demands for our growing cities and businesses require us to develop new supplies and make every drop count. Technological advances are being deployed around the world to do both of these things and combined with traditional infrastructure, present a great opportunity to increase drought resilience and enable continued economic growth in the West. As we think about the future of water innovation, it is important to remember that many of these innovative practices and systems are dependent on deployment of other advanced technologies such as broadband." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Louis Sabo, Amit Lang, Margi Hoffmann, Mary Beth Sewald, and Stephen Harper.
