Over the past few years in Israel, the country's water shortage has become a surplus. Through a combination of conservation, reuse and desalination, the country now has more water than it needs. And that could translate to political progress for the country in the Middle East, one of the most water-stressed regions in the world. NewsHour's Martin Fletcher reports.

The water resources management needs to be exercised in a comprehensive hidrology system, that intergrates those who sustain it, those who use it, and those who might fall victim in case of water related disaster.

We have built our cities largely assuming that water, when not of drinking water quality and properly contained in pressurized pipes, was mostly a nuisance: something to be avoided on roadways, kept out of basements, or piped to the nearest conveyance that could carry it away as quickly as possible. As a society we are rethinking these assumptions and looking more closely at the choices we make and how the actions we take affect the value of water. Mr. Quigley elucidates the complexity, scale, and hidden challenges in current urban water management as well as shows examples and live demonstrations of disruptive technologies including live feeds from intelligent and forecast integrated rainwater harvesting systems, combined gray water/stormwater systems, green roofs that think on their own,...
For more information please visit, https://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/intelligentwater With the IBM Intelligent Water Platform for Water Efficiency Management, a public or private water utility can unite siloed data for a holistic, singular view of its entire water infrastructure. It's a proactive approach to maintaining an aging network while operating on an ever-tightening budget. The IBM Intelligent Water Platform enables insight and control over every facet of water management—from pressure, to consumption, to maintenance—so you can predict pipe failures, manage water loss and reduce costs, a critical step along the path to becoming a smarter city.
De corporate video Watermanagement maakt deel uit van de serie The Delta Approach, een korte algemene introductie van Nederland op de thema's Watermangement, Mobiliteit en Transport. De serie zoomt in op de voordelen die het leven in een delta met zich meebrengt. En natuurlijk op de kunst om ons land goed te beschermen tegen het omringende water.De video is bedoeld voor delegaties die het buitenland bezoeken en derhalve beschikbaar in de talen Engels, Frans, Duits, Chinees, Spaans en Nederlands.
The Marselisborg Wastewater Treatment Plant in Denmark generates power from wastewater without adding any external organic waste or carbon. It produces 40% more electricity than it needs and 2.5 GW of heat for the district heating system. Together this represents 192% in energy which is equivalent to the energy needs for the drinking water supply and wastewater treatment in the Marselisborg catchment area. The plant has become a power station, a biorefinery and the world’s first energy-neutral water service company to decouple water from energy.

Water is a strategic resource for manufacturers and is an economic and environmental challenge. SUEZ environnement supports manufacturers all across the water cycle, throughout the industrial process: Management of water resources Production of process water Industrial production Wastewater treatment and recycling Energy recovery from sludge See what SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT is doing in water management for industry.
Ambuja Cement Foundation (ACF) has undertaken water resource management as one of the key focus programmes to be implemented across states in India to create an impact on the environment, groundwater resources, agriculture and allied livelihood activities. ACF collaborates with various state Governments, local NGOs and academic institutions to implement various state specific water conservation programmes. Our work has also been assessed as a part of Ambuja Cements water accounting study which resulted in the Company being certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) as 100% water positive. This certification is a testimony to our efforts taken in bringing about sustainable water management in the community. This video showcases our contribution towards water resource management in Gujarat.

In just five decades, Singapore has overcome water shortages despite its lack of natural water resources and pollution in its rivers. Driven by a vision of what it takes to be sustainable in water, Singapore has been investing in research and technology. Today, the nation has built a robust, diversified and sustainable water supply from four different sources known as the Four National Taps (water from local catchment areas, imported water, reclaimed water known as NEWater and desalinated water). By integrating the system and maximising the efficiency of each of the four taps, Singapore has ensured a stable, sustainable water supply capable of catering to the country’s continued growth.

At Northern California’s Lake Oroville, water levels receded Monday, stopping the overflow of water from the dam’s emergency spillway. This reduced the risk of immediate uncontrolled flooding -- but longer-term concerns remain. William Brangham speaks with Jeffrey Mount of the Public Policy Institute of California about the massive evacuation that took place and the outlook for the dam's future.
