Urban Water Innovation Systems

Weekly Webinars

Research Thrust B Series: June 22 – September 7, 2017


We are excited to announce the One Water Solutions Institute is kicking off a weekly seminar series focused on Urban Water Innovation Systems.  There will be a total of four series organized by UWIN’s current research thrusts.  Each week will highlight a current research project within the series’ theme.  The webinars will include a 30-minute presentation of the specified UWIN related research, followed by a 20-minute Q&A session. The webinars will be recorded and available on our YouTube Channel.


Thrust A Series

Our first series, “Research Thrust A”, hinges on enhancing our fundamental understanding and characterization of the sustainability of urban water systems by comparing trends in the past with alternative future land and water use, population, and climate scenarios.  Visit our YouTube Channel to view the Thrust A webinars!


Thrust B Series

Using data, models, and enhanced process understanding from Thrust A, the impacts of innovative technological solutions on sustainability of water systems across ecohydrologic regions are examined under Thrust B. These solutions include: building- to community-scale resource recovery and reuse systems, hybrid centralized-decentralized water infrastructure systems, fit-for-purpose water systems, green infrastructure, sustainable urban drainage networks (SUDS), and resilient floodplains.
