WEF is announcing the 2022 WEF Published Papers and Education Awards, which recognize WEF members for their significant impact in promoting awareness and understanding of water issues through the development of peer-reviewed research, public outreach, and academic curricula.
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) proudly announces that John Benedict Estrada and Pauline Victoria Estrada, siblings from Clovis North High School in California, are the winners of the 2022 U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize for their project on conservation of irrigation water using a drought assessment tool powered by artificial intelligence.
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is recognizing 15 utilities for significantly reducing nutrient pollution, one of the leading problems for the health of waterways across the U.S. The utilities were selected through Nutrient Smart (NSmart), a collaboration between WEF and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to recognize utilities that have demonstrated nitrogen or phosphorus reductions and developed robust community outreach programs.
WEF, in collaboration with the EPA, has launched the NutrientSmart program to help reduce nutrient loadings in waterways and recognize the water utilities that are leaders and innovators. NSmart will begin as a pilot program and encourage the adoption of enhanced nutrient management practices by water utilities and distribute information on tools and methods for lowering nutrients.
