Wanna watch the 'One Water' webinar?

February 27, 2015

On February 26th the Water Research Foundation facilitated a webinar on institutional issues for 'one water' management. This is now available for viewing.

The term, “One Water,” recognises that water from all sources must be managed holistically and cooperatively to meet social, economic, and environmental needs. As utilities transition to a One Water approach, they may encounter institutional issues related to planning and collaboration, legislation and regulations, economics and finance, culture and capacity, and citizen and stakeholder engagement.

Jointly funded by the Water Research Foundation, Water Environment Research Foundation, and Water Research Australia, the One Water project presents a framework for overcoming these institutional issues and provides case studies to show how utilities have implemented a One Water approach.

This Webcast presented the findings from the report and case studies from Clean Water Services in Oregon, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Presenters were:

Theresa Connor, Environmental Research Program Director, Water Environment Research Foundation

Carol Howe, Director, ForEvaSolutions

Paula Kehoe, Manager-Water Resources Planning, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission

Mark Poling, Business Operations Department Director, Clean Water Services

Moderator: John Whitler, Research Manager, Water Research Foundation
