ACWA Members Invited to Take Online Survey on Technology, Water Management

ACWA is cooperating with the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) to solicit broad participation in a survey concerning the role of science and technology in managing water resources.

ACWA members are encouraged to take the online survey. Responses are requested by Sept. 24.

Members are encouraged to forward this notice to interested colleagues and send a copy of the forwarded email to

CCST serves as a science and technology policy advisory body to the state government and recommends solutions to science and technology-related policy issues. The council is currently investigating California's water systems to determine where innovation in science and technology and targeted deployment can be used to address critical issues facing the state as it addresses the water needs of the future.

The online survey is aimed at identifying innovative technology and/or system approaches that can be used in California within the next five to 10 years to help address the challenge of managing finite water resources in the face of many future uncertainties, including population growth, changing development patterns, more water dedicated to the environment and climate change.
