From The Water Values (David McGimpsey):
Recently, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel at the American Bar Association’s 34th annual Water Law Conference, which took place in Austin, Texas. The panelists were fantastic: Pat Mulroy, the former General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority who now holds a number of positions, including Senior Fellow with the UNLV Boyd School of Law and Brookings Institution; Robert Puente, the President and CEO of the San Antonio Water System; and Vail Thorne, Senior Environmental Health & Safety Counsel with Coca-Cola. This week’s podcast is the Q&A session from that conference – a big thanks to the ABA and to each panelist for allowing the session to be recorded and released as a podcast. Listen in for terrific insights from these tremendous panelists.
In this session, you’ll learn about:
The importance of non-revenue water as a conservation measure Water conservation and its use as a tool for system growth Challenges faced by utilities as a result of conservation How companies use conservation to further their social license to operate How technology affects water conservation Governance and a common problem often faced by utilities in sustaining their business model Challenges utilities face when implementing green infrastructure The importance of education when implementing a water conservation program
