2019 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 the second annual 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 AWWA, Cleveland Water Alliance, ISA, SWAN, The Water Council, and WaterTAP. 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 will run from February 11 – September 23, 2019.
