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 U.S. and Canada. There is still time to fill out the survey, which WEF asks be completed by June 29 for water resource recovery facilities interested in participating.

By participating in this effort, utilities can help advance and highlight the sector’s efforts on resource recovery. The baseline data will be used to set strategic resource recovery goals for the U.S. and Canadian water sector and will be announced in October at WEFTEC in New Orleans.

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 the Association of Clean Water Administrators (ACWA), National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), The Water Research Foundation (WRF) and WateReuse Association, as well as Réseau Environnement in Quebec.

“One of WEF’s strategic objectives is to collaborate with our water sector partners to create a bold, aspirational and public call to action to accelerate resource recovery,” says WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill. “WEF is grateful to utilities that take the time to participate in the data collection effort, and for supporting this important project. Not only can it promote and accelerate the adoption of resource recovery practices, but it can help demonstrate publicly the true transformation taking place in our sector.”
