Big-picture thinking, long-term planning - they seem to be at a premium these days.
But not in Reno, Nevada.
Not when it comes to clean water.
Danny Rotter is an engineering manager for the Truckee Meadows Water Authority in Reno, and he works as part of a team that is using scenario planning and detailed data analysis to ensure the region's clean water future all the way out to the year 2100.
On episode 122 of the ASCE Plot Points, Rotter talks about how that process works and why it's so important.
