Join us for the 11th IWA International Conference on Water Reclamation and Reuse in Long Beach, CA on July 23-27, 2017. We are very pleased to hold this prime event of IWA on water reclamation and reuse for the first time in North America. IWA is presenting this conference in partnership with Water Environment & Reuse Foundation, WateReuse California and the National Water Research Institute.
This event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge regarding water reuse practices in different countries in order to build trust and further grow water reuse projects. The focus will be to bring together water managers, industry leaders, and cutting edge researchers to learn what’s working, what’s not and what’s next in water reuse policy and regulations, technology, operations, financing and public perception.
Registration is now open and a conference program is also available. For more information, please visit the official website.

90th Annual Technical Exhibition & Conference
September 30 – October 4, 2017
Chicago, Illinois, USA
The Water Environment and Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) continues to contribute to the great technical programming at WEFTEC. For 2017, WE&RF will provide three workshops and will have a series of technical sessions and papers featuring the latest research in DPR, fostering innovation with water utilities, nutrient management, asset management, resource recovery, granular sludge, and metanomics. New this year, WE&RF will host a Knowledge Development Forum Wednesday afternoon. The goal of the Forum is to encourage water professionals to highlight new research topics that should be included in the research agenda of the newly merged WE&RF. With the organization moving towards a one water mindset, WE&RF wants to ensure that the topics of high importance to its subscribing organizations, as well as the water industry as a whole, are addressed in its research and innovation programming. The forum is associated with other WE&RF sponsored technical sessions occurring at WEFTEC, in particular "Optimizing the Nutrient-Resource-Energy Nexus in a Carbon and Energy Constrained World," "Integrated Approach to Sustainable Water Management: Tools and Planning Frameworks to Enable Better Decision-Making," and "The Pursuit for Acceptable Exceptional Quality Biosolids."
Abstracts are being solicited for late-breaking research-based sessions to be held at WEFTEC 2017 in Chicago. The sessions bring together focused and cutting edge research findings within the broader conference, offering the interactive learning environment found at a smaller event. Learn more
