The Water Tower, Arcadis host water innovation workshop
- Water FM
The Water Tower (TWT), in partnership with global consulting firm Arcadis, hosted a group of international water and wastewater utilities on Oct. 18-19 for one of a series of three workshops to advance innovation initiatives in the water sector.
More than 35 participating utilities and partners are contributing more than $465,000 in monetary and in-kind support to complete a one-year global research project with the goal of presenting utilities with a roadmap of best practices for successful innovation programs.
A previous study led by the project team revealed that while utilities are seeing positive impacts from innovation programs, many struggle to clearly measure and communicate their value. The Water Tower and fellow research partners hope to change that.
