Many cities in the West face a mounting crisis of increasing water scarcity driven by climate change, population growth, ecosystem demands and deteriorating infrastructure. To address this crisis, a new approach to the transmission, storage and purification of water is needed.

This presentation will describe collaborative research by the NSF Engineering Research Center for Re-inventing Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt) to identify more sustainable urban water use, reuse and management solutions.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
