FREE WORKSHP LOOKS AT FUTURE OF WATER USE AND TO DEVELOP RESEARCH, COLLABORATIONS

MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning and Design will host the free workshop "Research in Political Fragmentation and Water Resource Management" from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, in the K-State Student Union's Little Theatre.

The workshop will feature a round-table discussion on the political fragmentation of urban watersheds and its effects on water resource management. The event will be led by Kansas State University's Tim Keane, professor of landscape architecture and regional and community planning, and Phil Barnes, associate professor of biological and agricultural engineering. They are joined by Jae Hong Kim, the University of California, Irvine.

Local and regional planners, landscape architects, engineers, developers, environmental resource specialists and students are invited to attend. Participants will discuss research findings and resultant strategies for land-use planning and collaborative management, particularly in the Manhattan regional area.

Maps of the region will be used to document ideas for future research studies. Graduate research assistants will document the discussion, possible new work and the collaborators.

"Water may well be the primary resource determining future urban development patterns and potentials, thus we must act to manage this critical resource collectively and sustainably," Keane sad. "The primary purpose of the workshop is to initiate advanced research and other improved model designs which account for the institution, land use and water resource interconnections."

For more information, contact Keane at 785-532-2439 or whisker@k-state.edu.
