Course Title:

Modern Water Stewardship - Short Course

Course duration:

1 day



Course Summary

Fresh, usable, accessible water is a scarcity for nearly 15 percent of the world’s population; the effects of global climate change have caused many industries and communities to change the way they view water, especially in arid climates. NV5’s Water Stewardship Course provides an in-depth look at the importance of water as a shared, community resource. The course discusses the difference between conventional water management and water stewardship.

Students have a choice of attending the course in-person at our Hollywood, Florida training center or online in the virtual training room.  If you plan on attending in person, please contact our registrar after completing your registration to receive a $100 discount on the course fee.

A novel focus is given on Optimal Entropic Balance (OEB), which aims to help course attendees to understand the best way to minimize risk (e.g., waste, water footprint, energy consumption) and maximize benefits (e.g., health and safety, operational efficiency, and profit) for their respective sites and facilities. To achieve OEB, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is introduced as the preferred Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) technique to optimize the particular set of inputs for a given site. The afternoon portion of the course provides a step-by-step instruction on how to develop an effective water stewardship program, beginning with the calculation of a defensible water footprint and ending with the importance of including community engagement and continual improvement plans as part of the overall program.
