Welcome Welcome from University of Florida President from UF Water Institute Director Bernie Machen Faculty, students and special guests: I am delighted to welcome you to the University of Floridas second Water Institute Symposium. A Gallup poll last spring found that water was the American publics number one environmental concern, trumping air pollution, the loss of tropical rain forests and global climate change. Americans were most concerned about water pollution, but they also expressed worry about freshwater supply. The source of this concern is no mystery: Despite an average to wet year in much of the country, water remained omnipresent in the headlines. Just a few weeks ago here in Florida, farmers efforts to protect strawberries and citrus from freezing conditions resulted in over-pumping that caused an estimated 85 sinkholes. Road closures led to morning gridlock, and many rural homeowners saw their wells go dry. Only the cooperative efforts of the broadest range of scientists and scholars will allow us to address the challenges of maintaining a clean, adequate water supply while ensuring the health of our rivers, streams and lakes. The Water Institute was conceived to support this interdisciplinary approach, one carried forward in this symposium on sustainable watershed management. Recognizing that the problems confronting water resources cross all political, disciplinary and professional lines, the public sector. Thank you for joining us for what promises to be a rich and fruitful conference. Sincerely, Bernie Machen Dear Colleagues, Thank you for joining us for the 2nd UF Water Institute Symposium. This symposium brings together professionals, students and the public to ex amine challenges to water resources sustainability from multiple perspectives. Presentations, posters sessions and panel discussions will focus on new research, We at the Water Institute believe that sustainable watershed management will only be achieved by continuously integrating new biophysical and social science breakthroughs into creative engineering, policy and legal solutions and pioneer ing education programs. We encourage you to enrich our collective experience by participating in sessions both inside and outside of your own direct area of expertise. Thanks again for attending the 2nd UF Water Institute Symposium. We value your contributions and encourage your active participation. Sincerely, Wendy Graham Wendy Graham 3

But it is much more than that. Throughout the ages, water has also served as a grounding source for cultural expression. It inspires art, provides a fundamental ele ment of social ritual, and constitutes a crucial feature of religious ceremony. Water has always been a central means for humanity to cultivate and express its spiritual and aesthetic sensibilities. This panel explores the cultural importance of water. It also addresses various means by which contemporary artists and spiritual prac titioners express their devotion to water as a means of heightening public awareness.
