AWWA's Innovation Initiative

AWWA's Innovation Initiative is an effort with the mission to inspire the implementation of innovative thinking and best practices in the water sector.  

Innovation Initiative volunteers explore innovation from the perspectives of key stakeholders - technology providers, consultants, academia, regulators, and utilities - to present resources and strategies that encourage collaboration and advance innovation.  

Water Utility Innovation Program Guidance

Innovation is essential to addressing increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, improving efficiency and effectiveness, meeting workforce needs and expectations, and reducing costs.

The Water Utility Innovation Guidance Document will help utilities identify and prioritize challenges, decide where to focus innovation efforts and resources, and develop or improve a utility innovation program.
