Strategies & Innovations
Waterloo, Ont. – Costly water losses in municipal water systems could be significantly reduced using sensors and new artificial intelligence (AI) technology, suggests new research from the University of Waterloo.
Assiniboine River, Man. – A new computer simulation tool being used to conduct a computer modelling project on Manitoba’s Assiniboine River Basin shows how healthier soils can reduce runoff on the landscape caused by flooding. Alberta Farmer reports. | READ MORE
Los Angeles, CA – The Skysource / Skywater Alliance is the grand prize winner of the $1.75M Water Abundance Xprize, a two-year competition aimed at alleviating the global water crisis with energy-efficient technologies that harvest fresh water from thin air.
Santa Fe, NM – Water conservationists and a Native American women's advocacy group believe mushrooms may hold the key to a solution to a massive, decades-old underground plume of toxic chromium that likely has spread from property owned by Los Alamos National Laboratory to San Ildefonso Pueblo land. The New Observer reports. | READ MORE
The Rural Water Supply Network aims to promote skills and knowledge of water well drilling and its management through videos, webinars, blogs and online working groups.
San Antonio, TX – Southwest Research Institute scientists in Texas are investigating using the latest remote-sensing technology to assess groundwater recharge more accurately.
California's Coachella Valley may be ground zero for a new chapter in water rights for Native American tribes, according to a Stanford University study published in the journal Science. The study considers other countries such as Canada that recognize indigenous community water rights. Phys.org reports. | READ MORE
Santa Cruz, CA – A new study shows how collecting storm-water runoff to replenish depleted ground water supplies can be coupled with a simple strategy to reduce nitrate contaminants.
Sudbury, Ont. – The Canadian government has invested in a water filtration system made by Activated White Ltd. of Sudbury, Ont.
Minnetonka, MN – Summit Envirosolutions' ground water visualization tools were recognized with an innovation application award at the recent Digi International Global IoT Conference in Minneapolis, Minn.
State College, PA, and Dallas, TX – A team of researchers from Penn State and the University of Texas at Dallas recently designed a new slippery surface for water harvesting applications. This slippery solution, so named the slippery rough surface, was achieved through the process of biomimicry. Engineering.com reports. | READ MORE
Dec. 15, 2017, Australia – Australian research organization CSIRO has created a short video describing managed aquifer recharge, the concept of humans storing water underground.
India – With the aim of completely changing the way ground water is managed, the central government of India has proposed guidelines that stipulate all industries, mining and infrastructure dewatering projects that draw or propose to draw ground water will now need to obtain a no-objection certificate. Live Mint reports. | READ MORE
Tulsa, OK – Researchers at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma are proposing the use of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy, or LIBS, as an analytical technique to detect a suite of elements in water samples. The University of Tulsa reports on the research. | READ MORE
Vancouver – Scientists at the University of British Columbia have released a policy paper highlighting how metagenomics is being used to study the microbial communities in the water in order to develop new tests to assess water quality. READ MORE
