Welcome to the home page for the Innovative Water Technology (IWT) Committee, an open and inviting organization of professionals surrounding water treatment and water resource recovery. Seminars and events are coordinated by the committee co-chairs and steering board members with input and suggestions welcome from any committee member or others. The mission of the committee is to support the efficient evaluation, demonstration, and deployment of innovative technologies and practices by providing a forum for collaboration among water sector partners and serve as a link between national and international innovation in the water sector and the water industry in the Rocky Mountain Region. Please see the links at the bottom of the page to find previous seminars, upcoming seminars, and other important information.
The perpetual changing of water treatment across the U.S. includes new technologies that are developed and introduced rapidly. How we conduct business as utility providers, consultants, regulators, or technology developers changes alongside technologies, new regulations aiming to further protect water quality, demands to protect the natural environment at large, cost management practices, resource recovery efforts, and the development of alternative income streams
