Abstract
  • REFEWLS - REnewable Food Energy Water on Land and Sea Nexus This project will explore the connections between food, energy, and water uses along Oregon's mid coastal regions with a emphasis and focus on Newport. On average Newport uses approximately 2,000,000 gallons of water per day, but in the tourist seasons the daily average water use grows substantially to 5,000,000 gallons per day. Surface water supplies are at risk and dam's cannot be built due to the seismic risk's associated with the coastal areas. Groundwater resources along Oregon's coastline are poorly understood, and this project will help illuminate potential offshore aquifers. This project will be a "stepping stone" for The Institute for Natural Resources working with the Institute for Water & Watersheds and OSU, and will directly benefit the up and coming COASt , a Center for Ocean and Aquifer Studies.
