One Water Approach to Urban Water Management

Monday January 22, 2018 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

onewater image (3).jpgAt the next Landscape Advisory Committee Meeting, Rosey Jencks (Vice President of One Water-Norcal, Brown and Caldwell) will present the One Water concept, an integrated planning and implementation approach to manage finite water resources.

This collaborative approach, involving a wide variety of stakeholders, breaks down barriers separating water, wastewater, stormwater and reuse, to advance science in all stages of the water cycle. Top benefits of the One Water approach include: greater resilience and reliability, opportunities to optimize regional infrastructure, sustainable community development, economic growth, and increased coordination among agencies and communities.

This presentation will cover the core steps outlined in Brown and Caldwell's blueprint for the One Water approach and discuss local small and large scale One Water projects.

Rosey Jencks, received a M.A. in Environmental Planning and Landscape Architecture from University of California, Berkeley.  Prior to joining Brown and Caldwell, Rosey worked at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, as the Urban Watershed Management Program Manager.
