Water Resources
005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Climate Change Effects on Water Resources Management and Potential Adaptations for the Future
Sarah Null, Assistant Professor, Department of Watershed Sciences, Utah State University. [email protected] Climate change, population growth, aging infrastructure, and changing societal values alter how water must be managed in the 21st Century. This talk summarizes recent research modeling hydroclimate change for urban, agricultural, and environmental water users and highlights potential adaptations. As snowmelt-dominated runoff shifts to rainfall-dominated runoff in mountain regions, streamflows peak in winter instead of spring. This affects irrigators and some municipal water users with season-dependent water rights, including the City and County of San Francisco, and water users in the Rio-Grande and South Platte River Compacts. Instream flows for environmental protection will likely be disproportionally reduced with climate change. Dam removal is also evaluated as a potential river restoration approach. Results quantify fish habitat gains from removing dams against water supply and hydropower production losses, highlighting the declining value of reservoir storage when systems are limited by precipitation. Improving water conveyance can sometimes substitute for water storage in storage-rich watersheds. Results are presented for California’s Tuolumne watershed, with some preliminary results for Utah. These findings suggest that hydroclimatic uncertainty can be partially accounted for with simple modifications to existing operating rules for reservoirs, though other approaches are also likely needed. Sarah is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. She received her BA in economics from UCLA, and both her masters and PhD in geography at UC Davis. She worked as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences for 3 years prior to coming to Utah State University. Sarah’s research interests include water resources systems analysis for people and ecosystems, climate change impacts and adaptations for water resources, stream temperature modeling and monitoring, and improving information-sharing between policy-makers, water managers, and researchers. Field studies, mathematical models, and systems analysis are methods she uses to improve understanding of systems and explore promising solutions to problems.

Water Resources Vulnerability Assessment Accounting for Human Influence
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Hydrology Session: Sustainable Water Quantity and Quality in the Built Environment I Title: Water Resources Vulnerability Assessment Accounting for Human Influence Authors: Mehran, A, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, United States AghaKouchak, A, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, United States Abstract: Reservoirs are one of the main infrastructures that provide resilience against extremes (e.g., floods and droughts) and they play a key role in water resources management. Based on International Commission of Large Dams (ICOLD 2003) records, the total volume of reservoirs is over 6200 km3, which is twice larger than the global annual water use estimated as 3000 km3. Just a simple comparison of the two numbers indicates the importance of reservoirs and their role in providing resilience for water security. On the other hand, man-made reservoirs change the water distribution throughout the year. Most climate change impact studies ignore the role of reservoirs in water availability studies. However, water availability cannot be properly assessed without a thorough assessment of reservoir conditions. By combining classical methods for climate variability assessment (top-down approach) and influence assessment (bottom-up approach), this study offers a hybrid framework that integrates different drivers of water storage vulnerability. Final index is termed as the Multivariate Standardized Reliability and Resilience Index (MSRRI). This index investigates the adaptive capacity of the reservoir and exposure of the system to variable conditions. MSRRI has been investigated over several major reservoirs in Australia and California, United States. This presentation reviews recent findings and discusses reservoir conditions in Australia and California using MSRRI under different climatic change scenarios.

NCEES Civil PM: Water Resources & Env Practice Exam Problem 510 - Open Channel Flow
Problem 510 is found in the PM practice exam for Water Resources and Environmental—but don’t be afraid to try it if you are just taking the AM portion as it’s a great problem to practice open channel flow computations! This problem involves a channel and overbank area which need to convey a given design flood. The unknown in this problem is the width of the overbank needed such that the depth in the channel does not exceed a certain value. There are two given Manning’s n values for the channel and overbank area. HINT: Separate the main channel and overbank areas into two rectangular cross-sections, and be careful when you compute the wetted perimeter, including only the parts of the channel and overbank that are wetted. DTC recommends that anyone taking the PE Exam purchase the NCEES Practice Exam for the exam they are taking. It is an essential exam review resource. https://account.ncees.org/exam-prep/

At COP 21 in Paris, Parties to the UNFCCC reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change. The agreement which underscores the importance of global collaboration allows for the charting of a new course in efforts to combat climate change. Among the goals …to keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels; to provide funding to assist vulnerable countries mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as an agreed framework for the Warsaw International Mechanism on Loss and Damage. At COP 22 in Marrakech the goal is to iron out and develop a rule book for the implementation of the Paris agreement. Attention is also being placed on water. The first Water Day at the COP was heralded a few days ago. It highlighted the relationship between climate change and water security. An issue tightly woven with food security.

Uncertainty in Hydrological and Water Resource Modelling
This talk begins with an overview of the properties of hydrological and water resource models then charts the history of their use inclimate risk assessment at the catchment-scale. Concepts such as equifinality in (hydrological) modelling and associated implications for climate impact assessment will then be explored. Uncertainties linked to hydrological model structures and parameters are placed in the wider context of other major uncertainties arising from non - climatic pressures, climate model and downscaling biases. Explanations for apparent mismatches between observed and expected hydrological change at regional scales will be offered. Two case studies will then demonstrate how models can be used as ‘virtual laboratories’ for exploring multiple working hypotheses about hydrological change (in the Boyne, Republic of Ireland), and for assessing outcomes of adaptation options (in the Upper Colorado, USA). The talk will conclude with a summary of outstanding research challenges and explain how these relate to the information needs of water planners.

Eating Animal Products Impact On Soil Erosion, Pests, Water Resources and Fossil Fuels by Tony Weis
The relentless meatification of diets is a momentous but wildly under-appreciated aspect of modernity. The average person on earth annually consumes nearly twice as much meat as occurred just a half century ago, during a period when the human population leaped from roughly 3 billion to over 7 billion people. On the current course, there will be more than 9 billion people by 2050 consuming an average of more than 50 kg (over 110 pounds) of meat per year, with huge disparities between rich and poor and the fastest growth occurring in the middle. Roughly 70 percent of global meat production by volume comes from pigs and chickens alone, and the industrial production of these two species, led by chickens, is expected to account for almost all further growth. The industrial grain-oilseed-livestock complex occupies a large share of the world’s arable land, with soaring animal populations concentrated in dense enclosures and tied to significant flows of feedstuffs. This talk will introduce a conceptual framework, the ecological hoofprint, for examining this system of agriculture and how it is contributing to a more unsustainable, unequal, and violent world. In particular, it focuses on how productive environments are organized and the biophysical problems engendered, as a means to understand resource budgets and environmental burdens. The ecological hoofprint also helps to understand how this trajectory of dietary change and system of agriculture contribute to global inequality, the degradation of agrarian labor, and an expanding world of animal suffering.

Santos Committed to Protecting Water Resources
Santos has installed an extensive groundwater monitoring network to provide additional confidence that the Narrabri Gas Project will not impact water resources used by farmers and the community. Hear from staff and a local resident in this short video. Glenn Toogood Across Australia, the Great Artesian Basin in a porous sandstone which is recharged naturally through rainfall. Anthony Brennan In terms of the water, where we are here, it’s been tested and to date we haven’t seen any chance in the water. We have a pipeline running through the place. To date I haven’t seen any impact on our water on farm. Our farm here where we live we are actually next door to the farm where they built the ponds on. I have seen the structures, they are very impressive. To be quite honest, any farmer worth his salt would be quite happy to have those dams on his farm. Peter Mitchley The Great Artesian Basin here recharges through rainfall and through the Namoi River running through the sands and dumping a lot of water into the sands. We know that that water stays above the zones that we are seeking to take coal seam gas from. Richard Creswell The Narrabri Gas Project is targeting waters underneath the GAB, they are not Great Artesian Basin Waters, they are from the Gunnedah Basin and it’s isolated from the GAB by some very fine grain sediments which do not allow water to go up or down through those basins. Peter Mitchley So we drill through the sandstones down into the coals and that’s where we take our water from. So it’s not connected in any way to the shallower zones where farmers and agricultural users are taking water from. Richard Cresswell So even in drought conditions a farmer’s water would not be impacted by any of the drilling that goes through the Great Artesian Basin to get to the Coal Seam Gas. Glenn Toogood We test our ground water pressures every 30 minutes right across our monitoring network. We do this because we not only believe its good science, but it’s the right thing to do. Peter Mitchley Conservation takes money. This project will generate money and allow us to put money into things like feral controls and weed control. The Pilliga will be a better place and Narrabri town will be a better place at the end of this project than when we started. So what’s the legacy? It’s to leave a better place than when we found it.
