Abstract:

Regional differences in climate and regulatory requirements necessitate strategic selection of water resources management technologies on a case by case basis. The purpose of this paper is to present two different regional case studies where multiple water resource management strategies were implemented as part of a comprehensive approach to sustainable water resources management. One case study is located in Missouri, and the other is located in Newport Beach, California. The water resource management strategies include stormwater treatment, storage, and onsite use, potable water demand reduction, and reclaimed water use. The specific technologies implemented include biofiltration, catch basin filters, water quality basins, distributed real-time controls (DRTC), and weather-based irrigation controls (WBC). Modeled performance data for the case studies are summarized. This paper also includes a discussion of regional differences in the water resources management strategies applied, and the supporting rationale.
