New York City’s Water Supply: The role of models in complex water supply systems, Dr. Adao Matonse, CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities
Thursday, November 10, 2011
9:30 am - 10:30 am
Each day, one billion gallons of water is delivered from large upstate New York reservoirs – some more than 125 miles from New York City – to the taps of nine million customers. This talk will provide a general overview of the New York City water supply system and the modeling framework developed to manage this complex system. The focus will be on how models can help with operational decision making, long term planning, and system performance evaluation. Dr. Matonse, a graduate of SUNY ESF, will also discuss the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed as a modern water resources engineer.
