Tell About the South: Javier Arce Nazario on Water Quality & Environmental Justice

January 25 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

“‘Besides being water of good quality, it is very good water’: Redefining Public Health Metrics of Water Quality”

Professor Javier Arce Nazario is an Associate Professor in the Geography Department at UNC-Chapel Hill. His research program has focused on the biophysical and social components of the Puerto Rican landscapes, and how they affect water quality and adaptability to extreme precipitation events. His interests specifically include understanding how watershed composition impacts water quality in the tropics, assessing the economic impact of extreme precipitation events, and exploring how community water management can be viewed through the lens of environmental justice. He is also interested in using historical orthophotography as an outreach tool for education and community involvement in water quality and environmental concerns.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs to Patrick Horn at pathorn@unc.edu will be appreciated. Light refreshments will be served. Special thanks to our co-sponsors, the Latina/o Studies Program at UNC-Chapel Hill.
