The EWRI of ASCE has developed numerous standards practice documents or model water codes for water resources alternatives. These include documents on regulated riparian model water, artificial recharge of ground water, atmospheric water management of fog & precipitation & hail suppression, and water infrastructure security enhancements. Others in the development process are on management of the control of erosion and sediment, aquifer storage and recovery, coefficent of conductivity, and concentrate management of desalination. The panel will briefly cover the ASCE standards development process, the ways of obtaining funding for the efforts, the joint effort with other organizations, and some brief details about each document mentioned above.
