Water Reuse and Circular Cities for Sustainable Development and Resilience Building

Water availability and quality are rapidly changing due to both local and global climate changes and other 21st century mega-trends. To address these disruptions, it is necessary to generate mitigation and adaptation strategies to the projected changes. Creating innovative system-based water and sanitation solutions is imperative to build a sustainable and resilient scenario. In this talk, Dr. Garcia-Becerra presents her group’s work on the development of municipal water reuse technologies, from basic research in the lab, development of nature-based solutions, to trans-disciplinary fieldwork with communities. She will also present her research on strategic socio-technological transformations needed to create communities with sustainable and resilient circular water metabolisms.

Presenter Bio

Dr. Flor Y. (June) Garcia-Becerra, P.Eng., MBiotech, B.Eng., is an assistant professor at UNBC's School of Engineering. She leads the Water & Sanitation Holistic Technologies (WASH-T) research group, which aims to make on-site water reclamation socio-technologically feasible. The group researches the removal of persistent micropollutants in municipal wastewater. WASH-T also studies the performance of small-scale decentralized water & sanitation (W&S) ecotechnologies in urban and remote settings that enable circular and sustainable local water management practices. In addition, we build interdisciplinary theoretical frameworks to propose systemic and problem-based W&S solutions that address current megatrends. WASH-T projects are interdisciplinary and include community-based research and social and natural sciences.
