The Emergence of Wastewater as a New Supply
Wed., August 20, 1pm ET Speaker: David Zetland
Wastewater services have evolved over decades under twin pressures
from hygienic and environmental regulations, but new pressures
have emerged. Some water-scarce regions see "waste"
water as a valuable new source of fresh water. Other regions
worry about losing supply to contaminants of emerging concern
(e.g., pharmaceuticals, hormones, endocrine disruptors, etc.).
This webinar will review the political, economic and regulatory
forces affecting wastewater services and communities. We will
discuss and share different means of meeting health, safety
and environmental goals while maintaining fiscal and operational
Citizen Science - Rescheduled from July
Tues., September 16, 1pm ET Speaker: Pierre Glynn
Join us to learn more about a conceptual framework -- developed
by the National Research Program of the USGS -- that engages
Citizen Science to improve the understanding and management
of natural resources and environments. Designed to empower
individuals to participate in active learning, this approach
encourages the public to move beyond thinking about their
own immediate local needs and consider possible benefits to
a larger community. In addition to providing new opportunities
for the public, this approach also encourages community and
policy interactions by scientific experts and other stakeholders.
Flood Risk and Aging Inland Waterway Infrastructure
Thurs., October 9, 1pm ET Speakers: Don T. Riley and Patrick McGinnis
Join water resources management visionaries Don Riley and
Patrick McGinnis as they discuss flood risk and the aging
infrastructure of inland waterways. Based on articles from
the January 2014 "Future of Water Resources in the United
States" issue of Water Resources IMPACT, this webinar
will tap the years of experience and knowledge obtained by
Riley and McGinnis. This webinar is also a prequel to three
panels -- to be presented during AWRA's 2014 Annual Water
Resources Conference, November 3-6 in Tyson's Corner, VA --
also based on the January 2014 IMPACT issue. Visit www.awra.org

Pricing Drinking Water for Conservation and Fiscal Stability
Speaker: David Zetland
This presentation discussed economic theory and utility practice
for pricing drinking water services, specifically the ways
of charging for water (flat rate, increasing blocks, water
budgets, etc.), how those tariff schedules affect consumer
behavior and how payments from different customer classes
fit a utility's financial obligations. A robust Q&A is
Hydrophilanthropy: The Road to Help (Is Paved With Good
Speaker: Michael E. Campana
Lack of political will and money. Fourteen years into the
21st century and that's why billions of people in developing
regions have no access to safe drinking water and sanitation
(WatSan). Michael discusses WatSan issues, the role of hydrophilanthropy,
and concluded with tales from the field.
Water, Irrigation and U.S. Agriculture
Speaker: Noel Gollehon
With the nation's need for additional water supplies never
greater, irrigation is increasingly viewed as the water source
for other sectors to ease their shortage. This webinar provides
a national perspective on the water demands from irrigated
agriculture and the potential for conservation to provide
water for competing uses. A robust Q&A is included.
Ecosystem Services Webinar Series
These presentations include a primer, as well as an overview
of the research effort underway in the consideration of ecosystem
goods and services in water resources planning studies and
a project to estimate ecosystem service values associated
with Sandy-related restoration projects and how those values
can be used to assess trade-offs in restoration decisions.
