US Water Issues Pale in Comparison to China’s

Posted on September 22nd, 2016 | No Comments »

Here in the US, we tend to equate drought with California.  In recent years, California has made the news time and time again for increasingly strict rules on water usage.  In 2016 the Northeast is also suffering our worst drought in the last 20 years. To most Americans, the idea of water rationing is something that is almost entirely foreign.  Unfortunately, for hundreds of millions of Chinese, water rationing is a fact of life.

China water chartWith a US population of approximately 320 million people, America has total renewable water resources of 3,069 cubic kilometers.  By contrast, China has a population of 1.37 billion people but only has total renewable water resources of 2,840 cubic kilometers.  This means that the average Chinese has access to less than a quarter of the water resources of the average American.  A full 60% of Chinas 661 cities face seasonal water shortages, while over 100 cities suffer severe water constraints.  Starting in 2013, the Chinese central government began issuing water quotas to every single province in the Peoples Republic.  Many experts predict that China faces a looming water crisis.

Due to the urgent nature of water resource usage in China, both the Chinese government and the Chinese private sector are taking rapid action to address the issue.  The Chinese government is currently constructing a multi-decade infrastructure mega-project called the South-North Water Transfer Project, which upon completion aims to divert 44.8 cubic kilometers of freshwater annually from water-rich Southern China to water-poor Northern China.  Meanwhile, environmentally-conscious corporations such as Alibaba are now building data centers that are cooled by natural bodies of water.

Nevertheless, China still has a long way to go if it wants to use its limited water resources to maximum efficiency, and everyone there knows it.  It is estimated that Chinese capital expenditure on industrial water and wastewater treatment will top $6.8 billion by 2020. Opportunities abound for American water companies with the right technology and the desire to enter the Chinese market.  However, navigating through the complex landscape of the Chinese market can be very difficult, especially without a local Chinese partner.

Hurricane Hermine Misses Northeast, But Drought Remains

Hurricane Hermine Misses Northeast, But Drought Remains

US Drought Monitor Northeast

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We survived Hurricane Hermine!  Actually, the hurricane did not hit the Northeast. That is the good news. The bad news is the Northeast did not get the needed rainfall. We continue to be in the worst drought in the last 10 years. Last year I said the California drought was coming to your neighborhood …  The Drought Comes East: All Water is Local

Summertime in the Northeast is a beautiful season well known for warm weather and backyard barbecues. There is nothing better than grilled fresh corn and local juicy tomatoes bought from your local farm market or produce section of the grocery store. Unfortunately, shoppers have been noticing an increase in prices of their favorite summer produce. This is the first time many people are realizing there is a drought in this country that reaches their own backyard.

I live in a Connecticut town where 20 percent of the area is used for farming. I have the opportunity to eat fresh vegetables and lettuce everyday in the summer. The drought in New England has affected the prices of produce. My favorite fruit is fresh blueberries for my Greek yogurt. Last summer 1 pint was $2.50 – this summer (2016) it is $5.00.

​Ask any farmer or gardener in the Northeast and you will hear the same results; this year has been a tough growing season. Between January 1 and June 29 of this year, the average precipitation levels between NYC and Boston, MA have decreased by about five inches. These changes are not going unnoticed. Residents are seeing brown lawns, pollen levels have increased throughout the region, and we are paying higher prices for locally grown produce. Farmers are watching their crop yields diminish with every dry day that passes by and must raise prices to cover the costs of growing. More and more Northeast farmers have been making the expensive upgrade to drip-irrigation systems to further preserve their water supply, which is becoming exceedingly scarce.

What can be done to reverse the damages from this drought that we are seeing in our own backyards? The answers that our children learn in elementary school such as “take shorter showers” and “don’t excessively water your lawn” are helpful, but are only back-end solutions. When we begin utilizing technology to recycle water for agricultural uses in the Northeast as well as on the West Coast, this drought will not be such a burden on our local farms, nor on our produce budgets. It is time to change the way we value water and take advantage of current innovative water technologies.  Events such as the Water 2.0 Conferences are addressing these issues.

Caprio sworn in as Republican registrar of voters in Easton

Posted on August 15th, 2016 | No Comments »

Vince being sworn-inBrooke Caprio stands with her father, Vincent Caprio, as Town Clerk Christine Halloran swears him in as Republican Registrar of Voters.

By Nancy Doniger
Easton Courier

Town Clerk Christine Halloran swore in Vincent Caprio as Republican Registrar of Voters July 22 at Town Hall.

The Easton Republican Town Committee appointed Caprio to replace Krista Kot, former Republican registrar, who was sworn in as interim tax collector on July 8.

Kot replaced former Tax Collector Christine Calvert, who was selected out of 60 candidates for the position of Easton’s first director of finance. Calvert replaced Controller Grace Stanczyk, who retired this month.

“I’m very excited to be able to contribute to the town of Easton,” Caprio said. “I come from a long tradition of public servants. My grandfather and father worked for the federal government, and my uncle is a retired colonel in the army.”

Caprio and family have been Easton residents for 18 years. His daughter, Brooke, 18, who attended his swearing in ceremony, is a June graduate of Joel Barlow High School and will be going to Champlain College in Burlington, Vt. in the fall.

Caprio is a member of the Easton Republican Town Committee, an alternate on the Planning and Zoning Commission, and a former board member for the Easton Community Center and the Easton Learning Foundation.

He graduated from Villanova University in 1979 with a bachelor of science degree in accounting and earned a master’s of business administration degree from Northeastern in 1987. He has been part of the Villanova University alumni recruitment network for 16 years.

Caprio is the executive director of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association, and in November 2008, he co-founded the Water Innovations Alliance. He writes a regular column for GE’s, Our Water Counts — Water Wise, and is the founder and event director of the Water 2.0 Conference series and an advocate for government funding of emerging technologies at the state and federal levels.

Caprio has testified before Congress and the state legislatures of New York and Connecticut, and he has been an invited speaker at more than 100 conferences.

Water 2.0 Summer News – Manufacturing Day

Posted on August 15th, 2016 | No Comments »

Last week we had the opportunity to discuss numerous emerging technologies to repair our American Water Infrastructure at our Water 2.0 Conference on August 3rd in San Diego CA.

San-Diego-photo-boxThe $400 billion required to fix our American Water Infrastructure applies to residential and Manufacturing usage. Water is very important to American Manufacturing.  The Water-Manufacturing Nexus exists for American Manufacturing to prosper.

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) had a Water Summit on March 22nd in Washington DC.  I would like to share with you OSTP’s comments in regard to the upcoming 5th Annual Manufacturing Day.

The following article was written by:

- Jason Miller, Deputy Director for the National Economic Council
- Thomas Kalil, Deputy Director for Policy for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Senior Advisor for Science, Technology and Innovation for the National Economic Council

A Call to Action to Celebrate the Manufacturing of Today and Tomorrow

Summary: On the 5th Manufacturing Day (October 7, 2016), the Nation will celebrate the vitality and reality of American manufacturing to youth and workers across the country.

 “With ingenuity and a determined spirit, hardworking Americans are creating products and unlocking new technologies that will shape our Nation and grow our economy… On National Manufacturing Day, we celebrate all those who proudly stand behind our goods and services made in America, and we renew our commitment to winning the race for the jobs of tomorrow.”

American manufacturing is world-class aircraft engines, next-generation electronics, life-saving biopharmaceuticals, and cutting-edge automobiles. It is inspirational entrepreneurs that run urban factories started in dorm rooms, and revolutionary technologies enabling products we never thought possible, from bendable electronics to synthetic organs. It is a resurgent industry, emerging from the near-collapse of the Great Recession, where more than 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been added since February 2010—the first sustained job growth in the sector since the 1990s. And it is an industry that is local, where Made in America’s competitive edge is rooted in the talent and resilience of strong communities and the world’s most productive workers.

Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of the strength of American manufacturing and an opportunity to educate and motivate the next generation of manufacturers.

Last year, Manufacturing Day inspired factories, colleges, and cities to hold more than 2,600 manufacturing showcases across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. More than 400,000 people experienced first-hand what is made in their communities and the skills needed to pursue rewarding manufacturing careers by touring plants, exploring career opportunities, collaborating in hackathons, and celebrating local manufacturing communities.

These experiences matter—after participating in Manufacturing Day events, a recent study found that 81 percent of students and 91 percent of educators were more convinced that manufacturing provides careers that are interesting and rewarding, helping to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

This year, we can do even more—that is why, today, the Administration is launching an effort to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and support entrepreneurs manufacturing their first product in the United States. We want to engage companies, universities, mayors and local communities, foundations, philanthropists, and individual makers and entrepreneurs. There are a number of ways to get involved. For example:

  • Improving the image of manufacturing, by sharing the diverse testimonials from today’s manufacturers or hosting a virtual factory tour so that anyone can experience modern shop floors.
  • Strengthening the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education pipeline by adding making and manufacturing courses to K-12 Career and Technical Education and undergraduate programs.
  • Encouraging entrepreneurs to scale-up manufacturing in the United States by supporting the development of next-generation hardware and software that increase the variety and value of products that hobbyists and startups can manufacture, and investing in shared manufacturing facilities.
  • Linking manufacturers to the Maker movement by serving as the anchor tenant for a regional makerspace or supporting maker spaces in schools and after-school programs.

Let us know what you can do to get involved using this online form by Friday, September 9, 2016.
