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 pm Thursday, August 29, in the K-State Student Union’s Little Theatre.
The workshop will feature a round table 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. Also taking part will be Jae Hong Kim, the University of California, Irvine.
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 develop future areas for research studies.
