Water Efficiency 2-for-1 Special: Introduction to Water Systems

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course 1 - Introduction to Urban Water Systems

Essential for modern life, water in the urban environment requires integrated systems to handle, treat, and engage water in a way that satisfies both natural and human requirements. Explore the curious and complex mixture of nature-driven and man-made needs, issues and systems of the urban environment. Join Dr. Paul W. Lander, ASLA, LEED A.P., in a discussion of the terminology, issues and systems involved in modern urban water systems management.

This course offers participants an introduction to the variables going on “behind the scenes” in modern cities and urban environments. With this knowledge as a baseline, we will look at a few examples of increased integration of natural and human systems that better serve the needs of both.

The course will introduce the built elements of urban water (reservoirs, treatment, distribution, end users) and the interaction with and impact on natural water systems (water cycle, watersheds, surface & groundwater).

Learning Objectives:
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.

  • Attendees will gain a basic understanding of natural water systems.
  • Attendees will gain a basic understanding of urban water systems.
  • Attendees will gain a basis understanding of the issues facing urban water system managers.
  • Attendees will gain an understanding of new design approaches to better integration of these systems.

Course 2 - Introduction to Water Conservation

Explore today’s water conservation elements and issues with Paul W. Lander, PhD, ASLA, LEED AP, including: common program and plan elements, issues and design, and water conservation’s role in modern urban water system management. This course offers a focused discussion on demand management by looking at the current state of professional programs, plans, and projects designed to conserve water and increase the efficiency of use.

Urban water systems today across the US are under ever-growing demands from population growth, water quality standards, and customer expectations. In this course, we will survey the state of the practice in urban water conservation, looking at:

  • Plans- the tool for determining baseline conditions, goals, and outcomes.
  • Programs- the full suite of elements water professionals invoke to address the specific concerns of their conditions as outline in the Plan.
  • Projects- the implementation of specific activities designed to increase the efficiency of use within a specific sector, industry, or end-use.

Learning Objectives:
Webcast attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.

  • Learners will gain basic understanding of water systems, and conservation - issues and terminology.
  • Learners will gain a basic understanding of the drivers for water conservation.
  • Learners will gain a basic understanding of 3 facets of water conservation: Plans, Programs, & Projects.
  • Learners will gain a basic understanding of current professional activities in water conservation.
