IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, April 27, 2016: "Aquifer Science and Texas Groundwater Policy"

N. B., New abstract -- we will view new educational videos from the Texas Water Development Board about the basics of aquifer science and how the results are used in developing groundwater policy.

Biography: Dr. Ernest To is an environmental engineer who has worked in the water resources field for 17 years.  Ernest earned his BS and PhD degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and his MS degree in Environmental Engineering from Cornell University.  He specializes in computer modeling of pollutants in water bodies such as lakes, rivers and estuaries.  He works for an environmental consulting company - Alan Plummer and Associates, Inc.- in Austin, TX.

Abstract: Groundwater is an important source of water for Texas.  In 2010 more than 60% of the water used in the state came from the ground.  Groundwater resources are managed through public stakeholder participation.  The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) develops technical tools (e.g. groundwater availability models) for use by the citizens of Texas so that they can make science-based decision when developing groundwater policies.  A series of four educational videos will be shown at the talk to introduce the basics of aquifer science and how the results are used in developing groundwater policy.

$5.00 minimum cost for the restaurant.  Supper is optional at extra cost.  Reservations are not required.  All interested parties are invited to attend.
