The Power and Energy Sector uses more water than any other market sector in the United States. The water sector is energy-intensive, as well: the production and movement of water places an increasing demand on America’s power supply. This panel will explore the interdependent relationship between Water & Power, and highlight the past, present and future of sustainability efforts at the local, State and Federal levels. Additionally, we will hear about the leading trends in re-use and recycling, and the technology innovations being employed to reduce energy use in the water market.

This talk will focus on systems-scalable approaches for addressing climate change with several examples from facility level to basin level to manage water, wastewater, and stormwater more sustainably.

SPOTLIGHT: New Orleans
In the City of New Orleans, ongoing partnerships among local government, citizens, and civic and business leaders are creating a pathway for implementing nearly $5 billion in infrastructure investments, policy reforms, and regional collaborations to create a more resilient, cost-effective, and integrated water management system. Beginning in 2011, the SWBNO partnered with the New Orleans Citizen Sewer, Water & Drainage Management Task Force, a diverse group of over thirty organizations and individuals with technical, financial, and legal expertise in municipal water systems, to identify existing funding, policies, and public assets that could be leveraged to improve the City’s aging and storm-damaged water systems, in part, by safely retaining storm water within public and private spaces throughout the City. Complementing this effort, the Greater New Orleans Foundation organized a five-part “Urban Water Series” to educate local officials and citizens on successful storm water management practices in other U.S. communities with “peer-to-peer” dialogues between New Orleans and these other communities. The regional economic development alliance, Greater New Orleans, Inc., recently completed a $2.5 million state-funded “Greater New Orleans Water Plan” that includes regional and localized strategies to address flooding caused by excess runoff and soil subsidence in the three parishes (counties) in the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area.

Ecosystem Valuation and Water Risk
Ed Pinero, Executive Vice President & Chief Sustainability Officer, Veolia North America
Whether it is the conversion of carbon dioxide to oxygen, the hydrologic cycle, growing food, or recreation, the ecosystem provides services essential to our existence. However, we tend to take the ecosystem for granted, or become aware only after something bad happens. Currently, we are experiencing a movement towards more proactive and comprehensive ecosystem services valuation. For municipalities, the role of ecosystems in water treatment, water supply protection and filtration, and storm water control are excellent opportunities to leverage this value concept. This presentation includes examples of how ecosystem valuation has helped to compare the cost of managing an ecological area to the cost of building gray infrastructure.

SPOTLIGHT: Resource Recovery
We should be viewing our traditional “wastewater” treatment facilities and infrastructure, as “centers of regeneration,” not simply as treatment and discharge operations to reduce pollution impacts. The opportunity exists not only to produce clean water, but to capture key resources in the “N-E-W” paradigm. This paradigm focuses on the recovery of numerous potential resources, including Nutrients, Energy, and Water to reduce the environmental, economic, and social impacts of accessing these resources.

SPOTLIGHT: City of Bend, Oregon
The City of Bend is a relatively small mountain foothill community that experienced rapid growth over the last two decades. This rapid growth resulted in serious challenges to the City's sewer collection system capacity and in some cases began to have overflows of raw sewage in dry weather events. By 2007 the City had completed a sewer collection system master plan to address the capacity issues with an estimated cost of nearly $150 million over a 20 year period. The price tag to correct these challenges for a community of 80,000 people combined with other infrastructure challenges to the implementation of projects saying they were unnecessary, too costly, and other lower cost solutions were not fairly evaluated. The City Council paused projects already in progress to recognize the need to revisit the master plan and wanted to involve the community in a new master planning process from the beginning. In the spring of 2012, the City Council worked with City Staff and the community to assemble an 18 member public advisory committee to work directly with the engineering staff and consultants to develop a new sewer system master plan. The committee is made up of citizens, environmental interests, developers, land use experts, business owners, and various other experts to provide guidance to the City Council. The City is using optimization analysis in the hydraulic modeling as a tool allowing the community to guide the engineers in the inputs to the model and analyze solutions. More than a year into the process, the City of Bend is getting positive feedback from the community and advisory committee.

INFORM – The State of Things
Moderator: Mark Gold, Associate Director, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA

Meeting the multi-faceted regional water resources challenges of today and tomorrow
Los Angeles needs sustainable water resources that could also help alleviate stormwater quality problems. The Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California are undertaking critical and regionally important efforts for water integration, including recycled water, stormwater capture, water conservation and the remediation of groundwater – all of which is within the backdrop of ongoing statewide water resources and ecosystem efforts.

Presenters:
Grace Chan, Chief Engineer and General Manager, Sanitation Districts of L.A. County
Adel Hagekhalil, Assistant General Manager, L.A. Bureau of Sanitation
Jeffrey Kightlinger, General Manager, Metropolitan Water District

Raising the bar on stormwater regulations:
TMDLs and the 2012 Los Angeles MS4 Stormwater Permit In a region faced with impaired receiving waters and numerous TMDLs, the new Los Angeles Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit aggressively promotes a multi-benefit watershed-based compliance approach, numerical standards, Low Impact Development, and an array of protective measures.

Presenters:
Shahram Kharaghani, Program Manager, L.A. Bureau of Sanitation
Sam Unger, Executive Officer, L.A. Regional Water Quality Control Board
Steve Fleischli, Director and Senior Attorney, NRDC

Recycled Water Policy and Climate Change
The potential impacts of climate change affect sea levels, storm drain system capacity, flood control, and hydrologic variability. The Los Angeles region is looking to water resources solutions to both plan for uncertainties in magnitude and identify options to reduce climate change drivers. Some of these measures are described in the State and Regional Recycled Water Policy.

Presenter:
Jonathan Parfrey, Executive Director, Climate Resolve

EXCITE – What is possible?

Spotlight: Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City has made a commitment to use green infrastructure as a way to address its combined sewer overflows and to become one of the most sustainable cities in the country. This presentation will provide an overview of the Kansas City's KC Green and Water Works programs. As part of Kansas City's federally-mandated Overflow Control Program, a 744-acre green infrastructure project is underway in one watershed to reduce combined sewer overflows. Green infrastructure is used to intercept stormwater, keeping it out of the combined sewer system, reducing the overflow and the amount of excess water that gets pumped and treated. To further enhance the green infrastructure efforts, the City is working with residents and neighbors to make improvements on their own properties by reducing water consumption and reducing the amount of stormwater that leaves a property through runoff or direct connections to the sewer system. Kansas City's project is one of the largest green infrastructure projects in the United States to reduce combined sewer overflows.
