A baby, Skype and water research partnership with Israel
Date:7/20/2010

information to assist U.S. scholars in becoming acquainted scientifically and culturally with Israeli water management and research, particularly its affect on sustainable agriculture in desert regions.

The project will link 10 UCR faculty members in the Bourns College of Engineering and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. Ultimately, faculty and students will share their findings with researchers at UCR and Ben-Gurion, and agricultural professionals, such as those at UCR Cooperative Extension.

While Walker was in Israel she alerted Ian Marcus, one of her graduate students, to fellowships offered by the Binational Agricultural Research & Development Fund.

Marcus got the fellowship. He will travel to Israel, likely in December, for up to six months of research on effect of the microbial community on the virulence of E. coli and its transport in water reuse applications. He will work with Herzberg, Walker's co-principal director on the grant.

Marcus and Walker are working in Israeli in part because the country is a worldwide leader in using reclaimed or recycled water, which includes groundwater, wastewater and grey water, which is generated from activities such as dishwashing, laundry and bathing.

A 2008 USDA report, "Opportunities and Challenges in Agricultural Water Reuse," notes that 46 percent of agricultural water in Israel is expected to be from reclaimed sources by 2020. The report also notes that the U.S. ranked last among 147 countries in water efficiency.

At the same time, there is increased interest in using recycled water in the U.S. and Southern California.

For example, in 2008 the Municipal Water District, a consortium of 26 water districts, funded a program to expand its water recycling and groundwater recovery efforts, with a goal of adding approximately 200 million cubic meters to the 445 million cubic meters it currently produces each year.

Similarly, the Cal
