Water Use for Urban Living: Rainwater Harvesting, Grey Water Reuse & Texas Law

Prof. Fouad Jaber will speak on the three most important aspects of water for an urban dweller:

  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Treating rainwater to make it potable, and
  • New Texas laws for recycling gray water

Dr. Jaber is Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Integrated Water Resources Management at the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. His area of study is focused on best management practices to mitigate the harmful effects of urbanization on stormwater volume and water quality. He tests the effectiveness of green infrastructure (GI) and low impact development (LID) practices such as porous pavement, bio-retention areas, green roofs, rainwater harvesting and wet detention ponds. Dr. Jaber also conducts research in water reuse in urban settings including greywater and A/C condensate reuse.
