Webinar Series Description

The landscape that has traditionally driven clean water utilities is changing rapidly. Today’s utility managers are no longer just treating and discharging wastewater, they are looking for ways to optimize their efficiency through new technology and data, recover valuable resources, provide meaningful employment opportunities, and enhance their contribution to the overall health of watersheds and their communities.

As “anchor institutions” in their communities, these Utilities of the Future employ innovative approaches not only to meet their own goals, but also to support the financial and social health of the communities they serve.  Register today!
