Sustainable Water is a leading force in water reclamation and reuse solutions.
- Boston University Supports Long-Term Water Sustainability in TX (3/28/2017) - A new partnership has been founded between Boston University’s Institute of Sustainable Energy (ISE) and the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation to increase water resiliency in Texas. The partnership has been established to help municipal water agencies throughout Texas transition to an Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) model.  IUWM is a theory increasingly gaining favor with water managers. This adaptive approach to urban water and wastewater management focuses on resiliency in an effort to respond to the increasing uncertainty about future conditions created by climate change, aging infrastructure, and population growth. Principles of the model include increasing water use [...]
- Colorado Reinvests in the “Forests to Faucets” Program (3/17/2017) - At the end of February, Denver Water along with state and federal officials renewed the “Forests to Faucets” partnership with a reinvestment of $33 million. The money used to renew the project will help prevent wildfires and soil erosion, which directly affects water quality of natural waterways. Federal officials estimate that 60 million Americans rely on drinking water, where water quality is directly influenced by the health of national forests and grasslands. Municipal water providers are often proactively involved in forest health because of their direct link to water quality. Forests that are prone to beetle damage can result in [...]
- 2,500 Acres of NC Waters Closed to Shellfish Harvesting (3/17/2017) - The North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF) has closed nearly 2,500 acres of coastal waters to shellfish harvesting. The ban came at the beginning of March, after the waters failed to achieve required bacteriological standards.  The closings will almost certainly have an impact on commercial shellfish harvesting along North Carolina’s coast, especially within the Lockwood Folly River region. According to the Port City Daily’s interview with the NCDMF, the Lockwood Folly River is a critical area for commercial shellfish operations.  “We certainly realize that, and have talked to those individuals in that region. We are continuing to [...]
