Food for Thought!
Question # 1
What is the future state of Smart One Water (SOW)? How does it differ from the current state of water management?
Question # 2
How can we broaden the scales of water management and understanding, across spatial and temporal scales and across purposes and needs?
Question # 3
Where are some successful examples where stakeholders with competing interests (Farmers, environmentalists, municipalities) have created a successful SOW Program?
