Water Conference Opens in Stockholm With Wise Supply Plea

World Water Week opened today in Stockholm with a plea for the energy, food and water industries to use scarce supplies more wisely and to clean up contaminated waters that help cause 5,000 deaths a day.

“Mortgaging our future by draining water from the ground, surface and sky faster than it can be replaced by nature is untenable,” said Torgny Holmgren, executive director of the Stockholm International Water Institute, or SIWI.
