Washington, D.C. — A coalition of organizations including WEF, NACWA, WERF, EPA, and WateReuse are collaborating on a new program to recognize the accomplishments of wastewater utilities that are implementing sustainable practices around resource recovery, watershed protection, energy efficiency and recovery, and community engagement.  The program called The Utility of the Future is Now is based on the Utility of the Future Blueprint, issued in 2013. 

The deadline for applications for the new program is  June 17, so interested utilities are encouraged to go to http://www.wef.org/utility-of-the-future-today-recognition-program to find out more about the program and obtain an application.
