Laws & Regs

On May 15, Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) Deputy Executive Director Eileen O’Neill participated in a meeting with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency staff to discuss progress and steps to foster improved management of water utilities.

The discussion, based on the Ten Attributes of Effectively Managed Water Sector Utilities, included representatives from the six national organizations that originally sponsored the publication. These organizations include WEF and the Water Environment Research Foundation (Alexandria). Attendees discussed challenges facing utilities and the need to address finances.

The publication provides a primer for water utilities seeking to become high-performing organizations. Since its release in 2008, the sponsoring organizations have worked to incorporate effective utility management into education, training, and recognition programs.
