Transformational Solutions for Urban Water Sustainability Transitions
Theorizing environmental decision making under uncertainty for urban water systems.
Linking science to societal impacts through stakeholder engagement activities.
Among the exhibits traveling to small towns throughout the United States with the Smithsonian Institution's "Museum on Main Street" is WaterSim – an interactive water management tool developed by researchers at ASU's Decision Center for a Desert City.
ASU's Decision Center for a Desert City was one of only 30 NSF-funded projects invited to represent the organization at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., where the DCDC team introduced attendees to its water supply and demand simulation tool – WaterSim.
At an annual keynote hosted by Decision Center for a Desert City, the directors of the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Arizona Department of Water Resources agreed that the ample water supply in the two states is the result of careful planning and conservation, and should not be taken for granted.
