Global Water Challenges and Solutions

The 2013 Richart Lecture

Dr. Daigger

Dr. Glen Daigger will present. He is the CH2M HILL Senior Vice President and Chief Water Technology Officer and the President of the International Water Association. He is a recognized expert in wastewater treatment, especially the use of biological processes. His nine patents for wastewater treatment have helped establish the nation’s wastewater treatment standards, and as the author or co-author of more than 100 technical papers, four books, and several technical manuals, he has contributed to advancing practice within the wastewater profession.


Significant changes in water management are required to avoid the consequences of a “business as usual” approach, which will result in about half of the population of planet earth experiencing water stress within the next decade or so. Alternate approaches to water management are available, but they will require significant changes in how water is managed, both locally and globally.
