Martin Institute Professor of Engineering, University of Maryland College Park http://youtu.be/QzIegwxpclY#t=30m57s A clean, reliable fresh water supply is critical to human life. Every day, Americans rely on fresh water supplies to irrigate crops, support manufacturing, and generate power, in addition to keeping safe drinking water flowing from the tap. While essential to life itself, water can also cause harm. Aging and unreliable infrastructure makes communities susceptible to deadly floods and contaminated drinking water. Proper vision and strategy are essential for using, protecting, and managing our water resources.
