WateReuse Association Members Receive Utility of the Future Recognition

Date: October 04, 2017

Eight WateReuse Association members received the Utility of the Future Today recognition on Tuesday, October 3 during a ceremony in Chicago. The Utility of the Future Today recognition celebrates the achievements of forward-thinking, innovative water utilities that are providing resilient value-added service to communities in community engagement, watershed stewardship, and recovery of resources such as water, energy, and nutrients.

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 WateReuse Association, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), and the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF), with input from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The following WateReuse Association members were recognized for the first time:

  • City of Cape Coral (Florida), water reuse
  • City of Phoenix (Arizona), water reuse
  • City of Quincy (Washington), water reuse

These utilities are being recognized for a second year but for a new area of performance:

  • Gwinnett County (Georgia), community partnership and engagement
  • King County (Washington), biosolids reuse
  • Miami-Dade Water & Sewer (Florida), community partnership and engagement
  • San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (California), water reuse
  • Tucson Water (Arizona), community partnership & engagement, energy generation & recovery, wetlands stewardship
