Presentation: Delivering the Fourth Water Revolution 

David L. Sedlak, Ph.D., UC Berkeley
Recipient of the 2014 Clarke Prize

BAWWA is excited and honored to host this special presentation by Professor David Sedlak, twenty-first recipient of the esteemed Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke Prize from the National Water Research Institute. Dr. Sedlak will present a version of his 2014 Clarke Prize Lecture, Delivering the Fourth Water Revolution. Climate change, population growth, and a confluence of other factors are creating stress on the complex systems that provide our cities with water and dispose of wastes. Urban water systems have responded three times in the past to acute problems through technological advances and institutional 

reforms. The lecture draws upon recent experiences in the development and diffusion of water supply technologies to illustrate ways in which water professionals, civic leaders, and the public can work together to deliver a needed fourth revolution in urban water.

Speaker Info
David Sedlak is the Malozemoff Professor of Mineral Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, CoDirector of the Berkeley Water Center, and Deputy Director of the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Research Center on Re-Inventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt). His research covers environmental chemistry, water recycling, the fate of contaminants in receiving waters, natural treatment systems, and the reinvention of urban water systems. He is also the author of the 2014 book, Water 4.0: The Past, Present, and Future of The World’s Most Vital Resource. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
