The Clean and Sustainable Water Technology Initiative hosted its first interdisciplinary workshop Aug. 6-7, 2018, at Oregon State University. The workshop drew participation from more than 100 faculty, students, and professionals, representing the College of Engineering and other departments at Oregon State, the City of Corvallis, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Navy, and several other organizations. 

Keynote Address by Richard G. Luthy: Urban Water Supply Reinvention for Dry Cities

The old ways of coping with water needs will no longer meet demand. The solution of urban water security will comprise a combination of conservation, desalination, stormwater capture, water reuse and water banking. This presentation highlighted advances in pilot demonstrations and systems management that point the way toward more resilient water supplies for dry cities.

Richard G. Luthy is the Silas H. Palmer Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of the Engineering Research Center for Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure at Stanford University.
