Re-inventing America's urban water infrastructure
Date:7/26/2011

n Water ERC is based in the American West where the effects of shifting water resources will be felt most acutely, but also where much of the leading thinking on water challenges is taking place. At Stanford, for instance, the NSF support will leverage a program on "Water in the West," an interdepartmental effort to address urgent problems.

"These four universities form a powerful collaboration," Luthy added. "Each has its particular strengths; and each is working on problems related to how we use and reuse water and how we design and manage our urban water resources in the face of some daunting outlooks."

"Our various test platforms in California, Colorado and New Mexico allow us to try new ideas at realistic scale and in close collaboration with industry and practitioner partners," said Jrg Drewes, an associate professor at the Colorado School of Mines and director of research for the center. "This allows us to demonstrate new approaches and move promising innovations from university labs towards commercial reality."

"At this level of collaboration we can achieve much more than any one individual campus could alone," said Nirmala Khandan, a professor of civil engineering, co-investigator on the project and leader of the center's work at New Mexico State University.

Industry-academia collaboration

To the mix of leading universities, the Urban Water Engineering Research Center will add the support of a number of industrial partners that will extend the reach of the ERC's programs and provide a critical real-world aspect to the center's work.

"The Engineering Research Center's multi-disciplinary approach can transform the way we manage our urban water systems in the 21st century for the betterment of both cities and the environment," said Mike Kavanaugh, a principal with Geosyntec Consultants in Oakland. His company provides specialized services in storm-water management, water-quality modeling and geotech
