Science in Practice Webinar - From forest to faucet: Linking forests to water supply across the South

September 18, 2020

Southern Research Station: Science in Practice

Presented by Pete Caldwell, SRS Research Hydrologist; Ning Liu, Post-doctoral Research Fellow
Friday, September 18, 2020  •  12:00–12:30 EDT
You can connect to the webinar through Adobe Connect.

Key points:

  • New data and tools are available that connect forests to specific municipal water supplies across the South
  • Approximately 56 million people (~ 50% of the total population) receive some portion of their water from forest lands
  • Managing and maintaining forests in water supply watersheds will be critical for protecting water resources in the future

The Science in Practice webinar series is comprised of 30 minute sessions that summarize recent research with a focus on practical take-aways for land managers and practitioners.
