The Water Resources Committee featured Mitch Walker, founder and President of Masuen Consulting, LLC, at a Technical Issues Forum on June 29, 2015.
Masuen Consulting LLC is a twenty year old outdoor water management and sustainability consulting firm. Mr. Walker has thirty years of experience in the urban, golf and agricultural water management worlds. He has a BS in Zoology and a MS in Construction Management. Mr. Walker spoke about the role of outdoor water management within the broader arena of water conservation. The presentation discussed how current industry mindsets, practices and values inhibit the demand side from being a co-equal contributor with the supply side in the water conservation story. A two year case study in Houston, Texas was discussed to demonstrate how relatively simple changes in the way we view and manage water can lead to significant reductions in water use and potentially save billions of dollars in the process.
