NYC-CPH Dual Urban Water Vision Innovation Call
New York City and the Municipality of Copenhagen are seeking new and innovative ideas, technologies, and approaches for how stormwater can be successfully captured and treated to optimize benefits, reduce risks to public health, and promote co-benefits.
Dealing with water in urban areas is becoming a growing issues for cities. Climate adaption strategies are now focusing on ways to manage heavy rainfalls that can make water become an integral part of the cities we live in. Solutions are moving away from just piping water out of the cities to new circular blue-green solutions and ways to reuse water in cities that are not only protecting urban areas from severe flooding but are becoming part of the usable infrastructure for the cities.
During this event you will hear from NYC Department of Environmental Protection on the challenges they face in water reuse and how new technologies and solutions can help solve these challenges.
