Aug 23, 2021

Denver, CO) 8/10/21The Water Research Foundation (WRF) has released Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for seven projects funded through WRF’s Research Priority Program. This strategic program enables WRF to address broadly relevant subscriber issues, challenges, and opportunities with targeted research that lasts three to five years. Additionally, WRF is providing opportunities for utilities to participate on these new research projects through the Utility Participation in Research (UPIR) process. Utilities can serve as a test facility, provide samples, respond to surveys, loan equipment, or share staff expertise on research projects of interest.
