Earlier this year, a small, simple internet meme on Linkedin caught my eye. The meme contrasted the present state of “What is” and “What we need” against a future of the state of “What could be” and “What should be.” As I pondered this meme, a key unspoken element apparent to me is the requirement and ability to embrace change. Change can be difficult. Change is also known for being uncomfortable, stressful and fraught with uncertainty.
More than 20 years ago I wrote a Master’s Thesis about software tools that could be put together with EPA SWMM to create a toolbox for very long term continuous simulation for stormwater and watershed simulations. I was inspired at the time by Dr. William James who was my advisor for that research.
A Request for Startups post on January 3rd on the Y Combinator Blog caught my eye. The blogger talked about the need to prepare for things to get worse with regard to climate change, and called for applications for funding from those working on new technologies that could inexpensively produce clean water.
Conversation at the 2016 SESWA Stormwater BMPs, LID and Green Infrastructure Seminar in Atlanta GA that I attended recently touched upon the idea of computers taking our jobs and ‘Engineering Bots’. This has of course happened in other industries, but I didn’t anticipate it happening in the stormwater planning, design and management world.
The effort required to develop water resources engineering models can be significant. But once developed, in many instances the models are only evaluated for a limited, or a single set of conditions. The results and predictions obtained from these evaluations are the ones used in design, presented in reports and conveyed to decision makers and the public.

You may have heard about the tragedy in Flint, Michigan — but to keep everyone on the same page the water in that system has turned toxic.
