Utility of the Future Today

The Utility of the Future (UOTF) Today Recognition Program returns for a fourth year to honor water resource recovery facilities for community engagement, watershed stewardship, and recovery of resources such as water, energy, and nutrients and to celebrate the achievements of forward-thinking, innovative water utilities that are providing resilient value-added service to communities.

Download the 2019 UOTF Application for Recognition

Public and private water sector utilities of all sizes that can demonstrate achievement of the application requirements are encouraged to apply by 5 p.m. EDT, May 31. Applicants must have no major permit violations in the year prior to the submission date of their applications.

The Utility of the Future framework provides a model for utilities of all sizes to achieve more efficient operations, enhanced productivity, and long-term sustainability. The recognition program component, Utility of the Future Today, was launched in 2016 by four water sector organizations—the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Research Foundation (WRF) and the WateReuse Association (WateReuse), with input from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
