Join us on this webcast to learn about the 2023 Intelligent Water Systems Challenge, which is back for a fifth year to once again challenge participants to use innovation and data to help solve some of the most difficult issues faced by the water industry. Past years’ finalists will discuss their solutions and the Challenge process, and the 2023 Chair will also be available to answer questions.

The goal is to demonstrate the value of intelligent water systems to utilities and foster adoption of smart water technologies, as well as give students, professionals, and technology experts the opportunity to highlight their talents and innovation with a focus on leveraging data to help utilities make better decisions.

The Challenge will run from January 23 – October 2, 2023, and is a joint effort by WEF and The Water Research Foundation. It is also supported by BlueTech Research, Cleveland Water Alliance, IEEE Smart Cities R&D Committee, International Society of Automation Water and Wastewater Industries Division, Smart Water Networks Forum, and The Water Council. 

Teams with exceptional and innovative solutions will be invited to present their results in person at WEFTEC 2023 in Chicago, IL for final judging. For more information, or to register for the Challenge, visit
