Our continued success in providing relevant and trusted research is dependent on the expertise and aspirations of our subscribers and research partners. To honor some of our most influential utility and research partners, we established two annual awards.

The Outstanding Subscriber Award for Applied Research honors subscribing utilities that have made notable improvements to their treatment, delivery, and/or management processes through the successful application of WRF research. (Award Criteria)

The Dr. Pankaj Parekh Research Innovation Award honors researchers and research teams who have made significant contributions to advancing the science of water through WRF-sponsored research. (Award Criteria)
