New planning grants to fund research on freshwater issues
Date:8/18/2008

ions (jointly funded by the Woods Institute and the Stanford School of Medicine): Researchers will organize workshops in two regions of the world most affected by a lack of safe drinking water: Sub-Saharan Africa and South/Southeast Asia. The workshops will be designed to foster dialogue and debate among academics, business leaders and regulators, with the goal of identifying promising solutions to freshwater challenges now being implemented at the local level.

Principal investigators: Jenna Davis (Civil and Environmental Engineering/Woods Institute) and Len Ortolano (Civil and Environmental Engineering)

An Integrated Model of the California Water System: This project will bring together scholars, industry participants and policymakers for a series of meetings that lead to the design of an integrated model of the California water system, incorporating agricultural, residential, industrial, commercial, environmental and recreational uses of fresh water throughout the state.

Principal investigator: Frank Wolak (Economics)

Comprehensive Studies of Aquifer Depletion and Salinization: This proposal is to develop a large-scale research project focusing on the depletion and salinization of aquifers, which are significant problems in the arid West and other parts of the world that rely heavily on groundwater.

Principal investigators: Peter Kitanidis and Martin Reinhard (Civil and Environmental Engineering); Rosemary Knight (Geophysics); Frank Wolak (Economics)

Water in the West: A Regional Approach (jointly funded by the Woods Institute, the School of Medicine and the Bill Lane Center for the Study of the North American West at Stanford): Researchers will develop a series of workshops endeavoring to lead to regional solutions to major water challenges in the western United States. Participants will include regional utilities, government organizations, non-governmental organizations and experts from
