Partnership for Clean Water

The Partnership for Clean Water 

The Partnership for Clean Water is a global optimization and recognition program for wastewater utilities.  It is established as a parallel program to the Partnership for Safe Water, which has successfully been helping drinking water utilities optimize performance for more than 20 years.  The first Partnership for Clean Water program is for wastewater treatment plant optimization, with programs for the optimization of reuse facilities and collection systems to be launched in the future.
