Water Resources Projects in South Florida

Water is one of the most basic human needs. With impacts on agriculture, education, energy, health, gender equity, and livelihood, water resources management underlies the most basic development challenges. Water is under unprecedented pressures as growing populations and economies demand more of it. Practically every development challenge of the 21st century – food security, managing rapid urbanization, energy security, environmental protection, adapting to climate change – requires urgent attention to water resources projects management. Water resources projects are needed in every country on this planet earth.

Groundwater is being depleted quicker than it is being replenished and worsening quality of water degrades the environment and adds to costs. Groundwater modeling assists scientists and engineers to evaluate groundwater conditions. The pressures on water resources are expected to worsen because of climate change. There is ample evidence that climate change will increase hydrologic variability, resulting in extreme weather events such as droughts floods, and major storms. It will continue to have a profound impact on economies, health, lives, and livelihoods. The poorest people will suffer most. Water resources projects can stop suffering for these people.

What is Water Resources Engineering?

Water resources engineering has its roots in the tasks of supplying water for human use, removing water when humans are finished using it, and developing methods of avoiding damage from excess water (floods). Much of the work of water resource engineers involves the planning and management of constructed facilities that address these tasks, including hydrologic and hydraulic modeling. Water resources engineering can be found in both engineering consulting firms and in government entities charged with supplying water or dealing with its hazards. Water resources projects engineering is a necessary skill set in a world dealing with increased population, decreased water supply and climate change.

Water resources projects include surface waters (i.e., coastal bays, lakes, rivers, and streams) and groundwater. These water resources projects may be used for drinking water, industrial processes, agriculture, and irrigation. Water resources projects also provide opportunities for recreation, such as fishing, boating and swimming. Tribes also use water resources to support and maintain traditional cultural practices and ceremonies.
