Water sector organizations partnered to release the Water Resources Utility of the Future 2015 Annual Report. The partnership consisted of the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.), the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (Washington, D.C.), the Water Environment Research Foundation (Alexandria, Va.), and WateReuse Association (Alexandria, Va.).

The annual report is an update on the water sector’s efforts to transform wastewater treatment into full resource recovery, which includes sustainable, cost-effective management options that capture valuable and reusable products. Since Water Resources Utility of the Future efforts began in 2013, several utilities successfully have  implemented new and creative programs to address local watershed challenges. The report features several case studies from across the country.

“Widespread promotion of utilities of the future is a major priority for WEF,” said WEF Past President Ed McCormick. “This collaboration among water sector organizations to help guide communities toward full resource recovery has put us on the leading edge of a major sea change in the way we manage and sustain our water resources.”
