Dr. Gerald E. Galloway, President of the American Water Resources Association and a Glenn L. Martin Institute Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Global Climate Change issue. The hearing was held on May 16, 2007 at Capitol Hill. In his testimony Dr. Galloway urged the lawmakers to initiate substantive efforts to develop a coordinated, collaborative and national approach to preserving and protecting the nation’s water resources now. He concluded that failure to do so will threaten the health and welfare of American citizens, endanger the economy, weaken the national security, and pass the problems to the next generation.
