Innovative Technologies

Innovative Wastewater
Technologies (IWT) Committee


Much is changing in so-called "Waste"water treatment across the U.S. New technologies are developed and introduced at a far greater pace than in the past, rapidly changing how we think about doing business as utility providers, consultants, regulators, or technology developers. This has been brought on not only by new regulations aiming to further protect surface water quality, but also by the growing awareness that treatment can be more sustainable from a financial, work force, and environmental perspective to meet the responsibilities of water service providers in the 21st century. The Innovative Wastewater Technologies Committee provides an open forum for anybody interested in discussing, evaluating, and testing new innovated technologies and other approaches to make facilities in the RMWEA more cost-effective and sustainable, while meeting ever tighter discharge regulations.
