3 Bernie Machen President Welcome WelcomeWendy Graham Faculty, students and special guests: I am delighted to welcome you to the University of Florida Water Institute Symposium. is is the Water Institutes rst major conference, and it couldnt be more timely. Statewide and across the country, maintaining adequate supplies of freshwater now ranks as one of the nations foremost public policy concerns. From west to east, the urgency is obvious in the dwindling reserves of Lake Powell, the shrinking Lake Lanier and the record low levels in Lake Okeechobee not to mention the abnormally dry or drought conditions confronting much of the rest of the U.S. Only the cooperative eorts of the broadest range of scientists and scholars will allow us to address these challenges. UF faculty conceived the Water Institute to nurture and support this interdisciplinary approach, and organizers have carried that mission forward in this symposium, which includes faculty from throughout the academy. Recognizing that the problems confronting water resources cross all political, disciplinary and professional lines, we are also pleased to have so many participants from business, nonprots and the public sector. ank you for joining us for what promises to be a rich and fruitful symposium. Sincerely, Bernie Machen President, University of Florida Dear Colleagues, ank you for joining us for the inaugural UF Water Institute Symposium. We are pleased by the enthusiastic response to this event. It is the goal of this symposium to bring together professionals, students and the public to examine the challenges of water resources sustainability. During the next two days we will explore the latest developments in science, technology, policy and education that may provide solutions to these challenges. We value your contributions to the discussions and encourage your active participation. Using ideas generated at the symposium, we will develop broad-based recommendations for interdisciplinary research and education programs needed to ensure water resources sustainability for Florida and beyond. We at the UF Water Institute believe that the best solutions to Floridas water resource issues will be found at the cutting edge intersection of hard science, social science and public policy. Solutions developed in Florida will provide a model for others managing similar water issues throughout the United States and around the world. e UF Water Institute faculty looks forward to partnering with water professionals statewide to make this happen. anks again for participating in the UF Water Institutes rst Symposium. Sincerely, Wendy Graham Director, University of Florida Water Institute

Wastewater and drinking water treatment is becoming increasingly challenged. What is truly meant by emerging contaminants and how seriously are they taken? What makes contaminants emerging? Are emerging contaminants new or just newly recognized? Are emerging contaminants always emerging? Agenda

PAGE 9

9 How should we be positioning ourselves through science, policy and public awareness to understand and address emerging contaminants? How can we ensure that the best available scientic information is used to establish priorities and make management decisions regarding water resources? What role do experiments, observations, lab work, etc. play in this? Key Question for panelists What are the major threats and current responses to emerging contaminants in water and how much does it matter? Panelists: Associate Director, Emerging Pathogens Institute, University of Florida Scientist, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Florida US Geological Survey Administrator, Chemistry Section, Florida Department of Environmental Protection 8:30 a.m. -10:00 a.m. (moderator: Katrina Schwartz, Assistant Professor, University of Florida) Summary description of panel: Water wars have long been a fact of life in the American Southwest, and now they may be in the ong for Florida. With population and water consumption continuing to grow rapidly, ocials across the state are looking at the costs and benets of water transfers in Florida. How and by whom are such critical decisions about water transfers made in Florida? is panel discussion will examine the role of various stakeholders in the decision-making process, and assess the possible social and economic impacts of water transfers on dierent communities and demographic groups. Panelists: Professor of Law, University of Florida Levin College of Law South Florida Water Management District Governing Board Member Administrator, Oce of Water Policy, Florida Department of Environmental Protection Director, Department of Resource Management, St. Johns River Water Management District National Director of Water Resources, PBS&J, Inc.

What role should water conservation and increased eciency play in the development and use of water supplies? What strategies and evaluations are necessary to identify the availability and cost of conserved water and in what major sectors of demand? How does future water use eciency potential t in supply scenarios? What role does the private sector play in increasing eciency of use? is panel will identify the methodologies that can and have been used to successfully lower existing and future average and peak demands, what potential exists in various sectors, applicable research that can quantiably aect future and existing demands and how both public and private entities can play a signicant role in increased eciency and conservation of water resources.
