Paving the Way to Smart Utilities

WEF continues to promote and embrace innovation, and smart water networks have emerged as a popular way to use technology to optimize system operations. As technological advancements continue to change the water sector, the qualifications for water sector jobs change too, presenting an opportunity to equip water professionals with new skill sets and knowledge.

WEF, through its Intelligent Water Technology Committee, as well as through the LIFT program, develops, recommends, supports, and conducts continuing assessments of technologies and techniques to promote the overall understanding of the application of process instrumentation, control equipment and automation, and computers and telecommunications to the management of information in the water environment.
