Keep Sedona Beautiful will hold its next Preserving the Wonder Speaker Series event on Wednesday, Nov. 15. at 5 p.m. This month’s speaker is Tom Ginn, Environmental Toxicologist. His topic will be “Sedona Water – Sources, Discharges and Quality.” Please visit the KSB website, for details.

In Arizona, it’s surprisingly difficult to understand where our water comes from, how much may be available, and what happens to it after it leaves our homes and apartments. Dr. Ginn has taken a deep dive into these issues and will share what he has learned.

Ginn is an environmental toxicologist who has worked on major pollution issues throughout the U.S. He has a B.S. in Fisheries and an M.S. in Marine Biology from Oregon State University.  He received a Ph.D. from New York University while conducting research on the ecological effects of a nuclear power plant on the Hudson River Estuary.  Over his 50-year career, he has served as an expert witness for some of the largest federal and state lawsuits in the U.S involving releases of toxic chemicals to the environment.   Dr. Ginn has published extensively in the scientific literature on subjects such as PCB toxicity, metals bioaccumulation, impacts of sewage discharges, and global marine pollution issues.  He presented a fascinating discussion on “The Role of Nuclear Power in Our Energy Future” a year ago at KSB.

The Preserving the Wonder Speaker series is held on the third Wednesday of each month.
