WEF's Resource Recovery Data Collection Survey

WEF is preparing baseline data to establish the current amount of resource recovery at water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) in the U.S. and Canada. We are requesting WRRFs to participate in this data collection effort by filling out a survey regarding your facility's current resource recovery practices. Supporting organizations for this project include The Water Research Foundation (WRF), National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), and the WateReuse Association.

One of WEF's strategic objectives is to "collaborate with water sector partners to define and create a bold, aspirational, and public call to action to accelerate resource recovery." To help achieve this objective, this baseline data will be used to set strategic resource recovery goals for the U.S. and Canada water sector, specifically for water reuse, nutrient recovery (focusing on nitrogen and phosphorus), and energy recovery. WEF will encourage the adoption of the resource recovery mindset in the water sector by quantifying and publicizing progress towards these goals.

WEF thanks you for for taking the time to participate in this data collection effort, and for supporting this important project to promote and accelerate the adoption of resource recovery practices.

If you have any questions, please contact Technical Programs Manager Morgan Brown at [email protected] or call 703-684-2400 x7467.

Note: We are purposely using a spreadsheet format rather than an online survey to make it easier for utilities to send around the survey internally and have different people fill out different sections of the survey as needed.
