Dr. David Sedlak, professor at University of California, Berkeley and author of “Water 4.0,” will be giving a lecture on his book on Thursday at 6 p.m. in North Gym 118.

The book was selected as this year’s campuswide read for students, faculty and staff through Fresno State’s water cohort. The book was integrated into courses in several of Fresno State’s colleges to give the campus community a better understanding on water issues.

“Water 4.0,” described by Sedlak in a news release, is about “the importance of making informed decisions about managing and updating urban water systems by understanding three major revolutions and technologies that have occurred over the past 2,500 years.”

Dr. Fredrick Peinado Nelson, chair of the liberal studies department and campus water cohort member said he’s glad the university will be discussing relevant water topics with the campus community.

“Based on our campus book club discussions, we expect a lot of great questions for Dr. Sedlak to better understand the concepts behind what we see in our sinks and drains every day that reflect centuries of creative engineering,” Nelson said in a news release.

During the event, Sedlak will also host a book signing and copies will be available for purchase.
