Can we save our urban water systems?

from Environmental Engineering Science

Existing urban water systems are at the end of their design lifetimes. New, innovative solutions are needed, and these must combine technology and engineering with an understanding of social systems and institutions. An insightful article contends that, for new innovations to be implemented successfully, engineers must understand the social, economic, institutional, and political mechanisms that underlie the human/technology interface. "Our modern urban water infrastructure is one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century," says Jennifer Becker, president of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors. "This article highlights a paradigm shift in our urban water systems and states that technological innovations are urgently needed if the growing demands for water and other resources are to be sustainably met." more
