Nominations Open for Utility of the Future Today Recognition Program


The Utility of the Future Today recognition program returns for a second year to honor agencies implementing the innovative “Utility of the Future” business model. The program seeks to promote and recognize utilities that are building on a foundation of excellent management and help small, medium, and large utilities transform their operations over time.

Facilities of all sizes are encouraged to apply by 5:00 p.m. EDT, June 20, 2017. Applicants must have no major permit violations in the past year. Honorees will be notified by July 28 and formally recognized during an awards ceremony at WEFTEC 2017—WEF’s 90th annual technical exhibition and conference—this October in Chicago.

The recognition program was launched last year by four water sector organizations — the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) and WateReuse — with input from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Sixty one utilities received recognition and are featured in a compendium of past honorees – an invaluable resources of UOTF‎ best practices. Complete information, including a series of helpful Frequently Asked Questions, is available to support you in the application process.
