LIFT SEE IT
The LIFT Scholarship Exchange Experience for Innovation & Technology Program (SEE IT) is an initiative spearheaded by WE&RF
, and NACWA
to provide scholarships for utility personnel to visit other utilities with innovations of interest and to share experiences with their peers. Innovations may include new technologies and processes, but also novel approaches to service, operations, and finance.
LIFT SEE IT provides hands-on interaction with innovative technologies and approaches with representatives that are implementing them to provide program participants with the needed perspective and information to accelerate adoption at their own facilities. LIFT SEE IT is a tool and resource supporting the transformation of water resource recovery facilities into utilities of the future
In January 2017, the sponsors awarded 32 staff members from 11 utilities
with travel scholarships. A map of the recipients trips in 2017 is provided below.
If you have questions about a technology that you would like the recipient to ask as part of their visit, please contact the recipient. As visits are completed, trip reports, photos, and videos will be posted to this web page for sharing findings with the water quality community.
The next application cycle will be open in the fall of 2017. To receive notice, sign up to receive Laterals
