(July 17, 2018) - The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is asking utilities to help assemble baseline data on the amount of resource recovery taking place at facilities in the country by completing a survey by August 10. The survey covers current practices for water reuse, nutrient recovery, and energy generation.
By participating in this effort, utilities can help advance and highlight the sector’s combined efforts to improve resource recovery. The baseline data will be used to set strategic resource recovery goals for the U.S. and Canadian water sectors, and will be announced in October at the annual WEFTEC event in New Orleans, LA.
The aim is to encourage broader adoption of resource recovery activities in the water sector by quantifying and publicizing progress toward the goals. Supporting organizations for the project include NACWA, the Association of Clean Water Administrators (ACWA), The Water Research Foundation (WRF), and the WateReuse Association.
