Ten Across: Water

Studying 21st century challenges across the living laboratory of the Interstate-10 Corridor

THE US INTERSTATE 10 CORRIDOR PROVIDES THE MOST COMPELLING WINDOW ON THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY, ONE WHICH PRESENTS THE CHALLENGES OF THE 21ST CENTURY IN THE HIGHEST RELIEF.

This singular transect strings together many of the most pressing societal, economic, urban and environmental topics of our time. A project spanning the entire continent, Ten Across (10X) engages this region as a living laboratory for resilience and innovation.

The varied geography of the 10X study area will be especially impacted by climate change, as clearly evidenced through the issue of water. Drought conditions are becoming the new normal in the Southwest. Coastal degradation and inundation are already hallmarks of the Gulf region. Balanced between these two extreme conditions, the 10X Water Summit will explore not only the complexities of water—whether too much or too little—but the greater questions of our capacity to respond to matters of such great magnitude.
