Abstract

As southwestern Pennsylvania continues to evolve from its industrial past to become a national leader in innovation and sustainability, it has encountered a complex set of water challenges that threaten the economy, ecology, and public health of the region. In this context, over the last year, the Heinz Endowments has funded the Pittsburgh Collaboratory for Water Research, Education, and Outreach at the University of Pittsburgh to hold a series of consensus-building meetings among regional academic scholars, community groups, governmental and non-governmental organizations. These meetings (one each on green infrastructure, water quality, and flooding) aim to identify key regional knowledge gaps and chart a collaborative research agenda to fill these gaps and enhance the region’s ability to strategically and creatively solve water problems. In June 2019, the first of the reports on Green Infrastructure and Stormwater Management was released.

Now, in October 2019, the second report describing the research agenda on regional water quality arising from a January 28, 2019 meeting will be formally released. This report outlines several fundamental knowledge gaps in the region and suggests methods to span these gaps with new collaborative research.
