Research and Innovations in Urban Water Sustainability

Managing, planning, and advancing treatment technologies for sustainable water supplies will be the three main session themes for the 2013 NWRI Clarke Prize Conference and Award Ceremony, to be held on November 15, 2013, at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, California.

An example of our conference program includes:

Managing sustainable water supplies and water resources: 

  • Dr. Pedro Alvarez, Rice University, on “Biofouling and Microbial Control: Insights from Nanotechnology”
  • Dr. Jerry Schnoor, University of Iowa, on “The Effects of Climate Change and Energy Development on Water Supplies and Water Resources”
  • Mr. Jim McDaniel, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, on “The City of Los Angeles’ Local Water Supply Initiative”

Advances in treatment technologies for sustainable water supply development:

  • Dr. Vernon Snoeyink, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, on “Municipal Water Treatment: Recent Advances and Drivers for Change”
  • Dr. Mark Wiesner, Duke University, on “Nanoparticle-Enabled Advances in Membranes for Water Treatment” 
  • Dr. Amy Childress, University of Southern California, on  “Advanced Treatment Innovations”

Planning for sustainable water resources:

  • Dr. J.R. DeShazo, University of California Los Angeles, on “Water Resources Economics and the Value of Water Reliability”
  • Mr. Jim Herberg, Orange County Sanitation District, on “Innovative and Sustainable Projects for Wastewater”

Rhodes Trussell on Southern California Water

Immediately following the conference, we will hold the Twentieth Annual NWRI Clarke Prize Award Ceremony and Dinner, where we will honor Dr. R. Rhodes Trussell of Trussell Technologies (Pasadena, CA) for his extraordinary accomplishments in using fundamental scientific principles and current research findings to solve the most challenging water quality problems and improve the designs of new water treatment plants and technologies.

During the Award Ceremony and Dinner, Dr. Trussell will receive the Clarke Medallion and $50,000 award, as well as present the 2013 Clarke Lecture on “Southern California Water: Past, Present and Future.”

The three free student registrations are only for the Conference and do not include the Award Dinner. Please note: Students are required to be full-time undergraduates or graduates currently enrolled at your university.

Student Volunteers Needed

Students, would you be interested in volunteering in exchange for attending the conference and dinner for free?  We would also seat you at lunch with a Clarke Prize Laureate so you have the opportunity to engage one-on-one with a leading researcher in the water industry.

Volunteers would be requested to assist our staff all day at both the conference and dinner; however, there will be plenty of free time to watch the presentations and network with your peers.  Visit our conference website at www.clarkeprize.com to download the volunteer application.  The deadline for applications is October 31, 2013. Please note that we will be selecting between two to four volunteers to assist us.
