Feedback form is now closed.
Advanced discussion of multiple issues including emerging challenges in meeting future water demands; innovative water supply projects; meeting the conceptual costs of distribution and storage of reclaimed water; legal and policy issues regarding the control of reclaimed water for future public and private reuse; and regulatory challenges and innovative approaches to addressing these issues. One such approach is the Central Florida Water Initiative (CFWI). The CFWI area covers all or part of five central Florida counties, includes portions of three water management districts, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, as well as several regional public water utilities, landowners, local governments, agriculture and various other stakeholder interests.

Part I of the course will explore innovative water supply projects that are emerging around Florida, including the CFWI, and the role of utilities and other significant water users now and into the future.

Part II will explore how Florida will be meeting future water supply needs via new or alternate funding and public acceptance of new technologies: For example: How will recent developments in the implementation of the Florida Land and Water Conservation Amendment impact future water supply? How do we engage the public and improve awareness of future water supply needs? Here’s your chance to listen, learn, and participate during this “must attend” course.
