Why was this paper selected for Editor's Choice?
I have chosen for my Editor Choice Predicting impacts of water conservation with a stochastic sewer model. This is a great example of why we need to understand all the consequences of our good intentions (the side effects as well as the desired effects) but also an example of how we can deal with unintended consequences. Their mere existence is not a good reason not to pursue the right course of action overall. Industry anecdotes about how water conservation is damaging sewer system operation abound, but this paper shows how we can adapt to changes - as we must, if we are going to adjust our civilizations to the new climate in which we now live.
