Regional Water Security

by Robert C. Brears
March 2021
Published by Wiley-Blackwell
ISBN: 978-1-119-66112-2

Description:

Regional Water Security provides new research on policy innovations that promote the application of demand management and green infrastructure (GI) in managing water resources across regions sustainably. In particular, with regional water security around the world at risk from climatic and non-climatic challenges impacting water quantity and water quality, this book, in addition to providing examples of demand management and GI being implemented in various locations globally, contains in-depth case studies that illustrate how regions, of differing climates, lifestyles, and income levels, have implemented policy innovations that promote the application of demand management and GI to achieve regional water security for humans while protecting and restoring the natural environment.

Regional Water Security will be of interest to regional water resource managers, town and regional planners, resource conservation managers, policymakers, international companies, and organizations as well as environmental NGOs, researchers, and graduate and undergraduate students.

2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure

The American Society of Civil Engineers has just issued the Infrastructure Report Card for the United States; it gives the U.S. a C-.  There are 18 categories examined; Hazards people may be especially interested in the categories: dams; drinking water; inland waterways; levees; and stormwater.

This assessment is quality work, thoroughly referenced, and very well written.  The chapters are not very long, and it is highly recommended along with the report card for states of interest to you. They are linked from the home page at: https://infrastructurereportcard.org/

Some comments by Dr. John Wiener, NHMA Board Member, on
NOAA forecasts and outlook for Spring and beyond:

https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/

https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=2

https://www.weather.gov/arx/2021SpringFloodOutlookUnfortunately, the near normal flood forecast is subject to precipitation changes; the hurricane season may affect outcomes.

https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/two_class.php
–  “These are the long-lead predictions, and they are EXPERIMENTAL, so the interpretation is not simple; and this work is evolving.  It may be informative to look at the sequences of changes – these may be imperfect predictions, but they are highly-skilled work products showing how best-available information indicates sequences.

“NCAR may issue some interpretations, but I don’t know.  My thin knowledge of these forecasts and predictions is long out of date, as my interests shifted when other issues seem(ed) more urgent.  SO… The shorter-term forecasts may be more reliable, and the drought forecasts are widely observed. 

“Hoping the NCAR supporters of Rising Voices can send much better understanding.”
