The Sustainable Urban Water Management Research Working Group

Exciting new opportunities to apply sustainable concepts for water systems in urban areas are emerging. As our nation heads toward a massive water infrastructure crunch, substantial effort will be devoted to updating and managing old systems. This means that extensive changes in basic elements of our water systems are forthcoming, and this is an ideal time to apply advanced concepts with new and innovative infrastructure designs, rather than simply perpetuate existing approaches. Recognizing this forthcoming crunch, and the opportunity to implement sustainable development concepts into urban water management, we have developed the Sustainable Urban Water Management Research Working Group.
