It’s All About the People: Building the Workforce of the Future

The landscape that has traditionally driven wastewater utilities is changing rapidly. Today’s utility managers are no longer just concentrating on treating and discharging wastewater. They are now looking for ways to optimize their efficiency, recover valuable resources and contribute to the overall health of watersheds.

To make this all happen, Utilities of the Future will also need a workforce that is resilient, innovative, and committed to long-term sustainability. This path forward is reflected in the Water Resources Utility of the Future Blueprint, first issued in 2013.

Please join NACWA, WEF, U.S. EPA, WERF, and WateReuse in this second webinar in a series focused on innovative ways in which utilities are becoming their own Utility of the Future to explore how utilities are building and nurturing a sustainable workforce. Future webinars will cover other leading topics like building public support, green infrastructure, and watershed-based solutions. Learn more.

Creative Solutions for the Recovery of Commodities from Wastewater

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET
Cost: $0 members | $40 nonmembers

Nutrients, energy, (new) water, and biosolids are established resources that can be recovered from wastewater – but are there other value-added products that can be extracted from wastewater? This web seminar showcases WERF’s latest research on the recovery of additional commodities from water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) including carbon-based products, bioplastic, bioisoprene, plasmids, and rare earth elements. Learn more.
