Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF) is funding three new research projects that will be of particular benefit to smaller water utilities.
The three projects, which are being funded for a total of $250,000, are the first to be funded through the new AwwaRF Small Systems Initiative, which was launched in January. Under the initiative, AwwaRF is focusing resources on the specific needs of small water utilities.
“Research targeted toward smaller water suppliers will help address issues that are unique to their size and limited resources,” said Robert C. Renner, executive director of AwwaRF. “The findings will assist them in delivering safe and affordable drinking water to the public, which ultimately benefits the nation’s drinking water community as a whole.”
