2018 LIFT Intelligent Water Systems Challenge
The LIFT program, a joint effort of The Water Research
Foundation (WRF) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF), is holding its first-ever
Intelligent Water Challenge to demonstrate the value of intelligent water
systems to utilities and thereby foster the adoption of smart water
technologies. The Challenge is also supported by the American Water Works
Association (AWWA), Smart Water Networks Forum (SWAN), International
Society of Automation’s (ISA) Water and Wastewater Division, Cleveland Water Alliance, The International Society of Automation, The Water Council, Water Technology Acceleration Project (WaterTAP), BlueTech Research, and the International Water Association (IWA). The Challenge gives students, professionals and technology aficionados the
opportunity to showcase their talents and innovation, with a focus on
leveraging data using the best available tools to help utilities better
understand the dynamics of complex systems and make better decisions.
The Challenge, which will run from April 9 – September 3, 2018, will make general problem statements
