WEF Webcasts Cover Utilities of the Future, Recovering Commodities from Wastewater, and Green Stormwater Infrastructure

EPA Webcast: Enabling the Water Resources Utility of the Future Webinar Series Part 2

This second webcast in a Utilities of the Future series explores how utilities are building and nurturing a sustainable workforce. To optimize efficiency, recover resources, and contribute to the overall health of watersheds, utilities need a workforce that is resilient, innovative, and committed to long-term sustainability.

The Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Association of Clean Water Agencies (Washington, D.C.), Water Environment Research Foundation (Alexandria, Va.), and WateReuse Association (Alexandria, Va.) host this series.

Future webcasts will cover such topics as building public support, green infrastructure, and watershed-based solutions.

Creative Solutions for the Recovery of Commodities from Wastewater

Other value-added products — in addition to such established resources as nutrients, energy, water, and biosolids — can be extracted from wastewater. This webcast describes the latest research from the Water Environment Research Foundation (Alexandria, Va.) on recovering commodities from water resource recovery facilities. These commodities include carbon-based products, bioplastics, bioisoprene, plasmids, and rare earth elements.

Getting to the Bottom of Green Infrastructure Costs

Municipalities and utilities responsible for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit compliance in the U.S. may be interested in the cost of green stormwater infrastructure. Webcast participants will explore the trends, case studies, and factors affecting capital and operating costs of stormwater management programs, and strategies to pay for these programs. Case studies from New York, Pennsylvania, and the Chesapeake Bay region will be presented.

June 29, 1–3 p.m. (EDT)
