  • How Israel became a leader in water use in the Middle East

    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.

  • Water Management in Madagascar | Global 3000

    Climate change poses a serious threat to the population of the Mahafaly Plateau, one of the most arid parts of Madagascar. A water management plan developed by the Worldwide Fund for Nature helps local tribes make agriculture more sustainable. It's a vicious circle: because of climate change, drought has become a serious problem on the Mahafaly Plateau. But at the same time, locals are clearing forests to use the land for farming, thereby exacerbating their environmental problems. The WWF is now assisting local communities in improving the management and use of the little water available to them.

    As droughts and shortages appear in the news more and more frequently, water resource management is becoming increasingly important. We've created an Internet of Things solution that makes it easy to monitor and control water systems at any scale. In this video, we show you how to build a water management application that monitors water levels in tanks, and then remotely refills the tanks when necessary. If the water volume in a tank falls below a specified level, the application will check the weather forecast using Yahoo!

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, and ambient information systems that tie people to their water environment by integrating information into living spaces. As Director of Research and Development for Real-Time Services at Geosyntec, Marcus Quigley works on solutions of some of the country's most challenging urban water infrastructure problems through a variety of innovative approaches including physical environmental computing (i.e., treating the physical world as an extension of the virtual internet). In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

This creates economic, environmental, and human health concerns downstream. A prime example is evident in the Mississippi River Basin, within which the nitrate carried in drainage water is contributing to hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico. Drainage research and extension programs are exploring ways to reduce the potential environmental impacts of agricultural drainage while retaining its agronomic benefits. Some practices that can reduce nitrate loads on drained soils include: growing winter forage or cover crops, nutrient management, bioreactors, constructed wetlands, and drainage water management (DWM) or controlled drainage. Controlled drainage is an effective practice for reducing nitrate losses from drainage systems, yet its adoption has not been widespread. This presentation explores the importance of DWM via control structures and its impact on drainage water quantity and quality. Basic DWM planning and implementation information is presented so NRCS conservation planners can begin to add DWM to their toolbox of practices for water quality improvement.
