Integrated urban water management in Texas: a review to inform a one water approach for the future
MetadataShow full item record
Texas has considerable experience grappling with historic droughts as well as flooding associated with tropical storms and hurricanes, yet the State’s water management challenges are projected to increase. Urban densification, increased frequency and severity of droughts and floods, aging infrastructure, and a management system that is not reflective of the true cost of water all influence water risk. Integrated urban water management strategies, like ‘One Water’, represent an emerging management paradigm that emphasizes the interconnectedness of water throughout the water cycle and capitalizes on opportunities that arise from this holistic viewpoint. Here, we review water management practices in five Texas cities and examine how the One Water approach could represent a viable framework to maintain a reliable, sustainable, and affordable water supply for the future. We also examine financial and business models that establish a foundational pathway towards the ‘utility of the future’ and the One Water paradigm more broadly.

Photoassisted solid-catalysed reduction of nitrogen by water and decomposition of water over partially reduced ferric oxide Khader, Mahmoud M. (Boston University, 1988)Partially reduced ferric oxide was found to be an active photocatalyst for the production of H2 from water and NH3 from N2 and H2O. The catalyst was prepared by reducing α-Fe2O3 in a mixture of H2 and H2O vapor, and then ...
