Workshop for Developing Evaluation Metrics to Advance a National Water Resource Resource Recovery Facility Test Bed Network

workshop

Held at the National Science Foundation Headquarters in May 2016, the workshop’s primary objective was to define several key metrics that every new technology evaluated at the national test bed network that impacts the operations of a water resource recovery facility should measure and report.

The workshop focused on four technical areas:

1. Developing Common Metrics for All Technologies
2. Developing a Framework for New Metrics as new Innovations Emerge
3. Storing the Data Generated During Testing
4. Sharing Information After the Pilot is Completed
