Water Conservation and Its Impact on Water Utilities: An ABA Panel with Pat Mulroy, Robert Puente and Vail Thorne [PODCAST]

Recently, I was fortunate enough to moderate a panel at the American Bar Association’s 34th annual Water Law Conference, which took place in Austin, Texas. The panelists were fantastic: Pat Mulroy, the former General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority who now holds a number of positions, including Senior Fellow with the UNLV Boyd School of Law and Brookings Institution; Robert Puente, the President and CEO of the San Antonio Water System; and Vail Thorne, Senior Environmental Health & Safety Counsel with Coca-Cola. This week’s podcast is the Q&A session from that conference – a big thanks to the ABA and to each panelist for allowing the session to be recorded and released as a podcast. Listen in for terrific insights from these tremendous panelists.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • The importance of non-revenue water as a conservation measure
  • Water conservation and its use as a tool for system growth
  • Challenges faced by utilities as a result of conservation
  • How companies use conservation to further their social license to operate
  • How technology affects water conservation
  • Governance and a common problem often faced by utilities in sustaining their business model
  • Challenges utilities face when implementing green infrastructure
  • The importance of education when implementing a water conservation program
