Hi, I’m Angela Godwin for WaterWorld magazine, bringing you water and wastewater news headlines for the week of May 8.
Coming up… ASCE publishes new stormwater guidelines ‘Living Map’ compiles water financing ideas Diamond wastewater technology strikes gold at Edison Awards Water data available from Bureau of Reclamation for download, use The American Society of Civil Engineers has released three new standards that provide updated guidelines for urban stormwater systems.
But researchers from Stanford believe they can help.
The Stanford team has created a “Living Map” of innovative ways to finance water projects in the United States.
The map shows case studies of successful water financing efforts around the country designed to be implemented at various scales.
