After Decades of Indirect Potable Reuse; Are We Ready for the Next Step, Direct Potable Reuse?

Thursday, October 12, 2017
OCSD Headquarters
Fountain Valley, California

AAEES is dedicated to excellence in the practice of environmental engineering to ensure the public health safety and welfare. In Southern California, a key component of the practice focuses on meeting the challenge of securing future water supplies. Historically, water purchased from outside the region provided a reliable source. However, reduction in imported water supplies, combined with recurring droughts and population growth, indicate that demand for water will overwhelm supply unless new regional sources are developed.

Webinar: Physics-Based Management Optimization (PBMO™) Technology Presentation

On August 15th, our webinar, Physics-Based Management Optimization (PBMO™) Technology Presentation, had to be rescheduled due to technical issues with the third party webinar platform. The free webinar on PBMO™ has been rescheduled.

Date: Tuesday October 17, 2017 | Time: 12 noon EDT | Grand Prize Winner: Research | Entrant: HydroGeoLogic, Inc.

Project Summary:
PBMO™ combines groundwater and surface water modeling with a computational optimization engine that rapidly tests numerous options for site management, identifying the most cost- and time-efficient pathways to site restoration. The PBMO™ technology uses the power of cloud-based computing to address environmental and water resource management challenges at a level of detail previously considered impractical.

PBMO™ captures important site-specific physics and accounts for financial constraints to produce optimal solutions that satisfy multiple and sometimes competing objectives. Applied to environmental restoration projects, PBMO™ identifies optimal remedy designs and operation approaches that lead to timely and cost-effective cleanups. For water resource management projects, the tool balances water needs with resource protection.

In this webinar, HGL will provide more details about the computational engine and optimizer user interface (OUI) of PBMO™ than presented previously. In addition, HGL will discuss future enhancements that will improve the ability of PBMO™ to address plume delineation and plume migration during pre-remedial activities at emerging contaminant (e.g., PFAS and PFOA) and DNAPL sites.

Webinar Details:
This will be an interactive session with "live chat" capability. The session is open to environmental engineering and science professionals across all sectors and career stages. Our objective is to offer special insights on leading edge solutions for graduate and undergraduate students as well as early to mid-career environmental professionals who are considering specialty certification.

S&T Professor Wants to Reduce Cost of Tropical Storm Risk

Date: September 7, 2017
Source: The Rolla Daily News

Can good come from a disaster? Missouri S&T Professor, Dan Oerther hopes so. He's working with a team of development professionals and finance experts across the Caribbean to answer this question. As the cleanup from Hurricane Harvey continues, and we assess the devastation from Hurricane Irma, many are asking, 'Is there any way to avoid such devastation?'

Can good come from a disaster? Missouri S&T Professor, Dan Oerther hopes so. He's working with a team of development professionals and finance experts across the Caribbean to answer this question. As the cleanup from Hurricane Harvey continues, and we assess the devastation from Hurricane Irma, many are asking, 'Is there any way to avoid such devastation?' Resilience is the buzzword being tossed around by professionals working on this question, and Oerther is at the forefront of these efforts.

"Finance provides a tool linking the risk of disaster with the behaviors of those most at risk," explains Oerther. One example is car insurance. When a car is wrecked, insurance covers the cost of repairs. Drivers who avoid wrecks are charged less for insurance as compared to drivers who have wrecks often. "So, insurance provides a 'good driver discount', and we're using a similar approach to promote resilience to severe storms in the Caribbean."

Oerther is working on a project called, COAST, which stands for Caribbean Ocean and Aquaculture Sustainability faciliTy. "It's a mouthful," shares Oerther, "but the bottom line is that we're looking for ways to link discounts in hurricane insurance to behaviors that reduce the costs of damage from storms." COAST focuses on the fisheries industry through the Caribbean.

According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the Caribbean fishing industry exports nearly $300 million of product annually, with more than a quarter of this value ... click here to continue.
