The Water Research Foundation Signs Memorandum of Understanding with EPA to Advance Nutrient Management Efforts

Feb 6, 2019

Alexandria, VA — Building on The Water Research Foundation’s (WRF) decades-long research on nutrients in America’s waters, WRF and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to increase understanding of how smart partnerships and market-based approaches can be used to reduce excess nutrients in the nation’s waterways. The MOU builds on success achieved through the Nutrient Recycling Challenge, a competition launched in 2016 by EPA with support from WRF and other partners, to develop affordable technologies to recycle nutrients from livestock manure. Through this new partnership, EPA and WRF will collaborate with the water sector and agricultural community to build capacity and awareness of research, innovative technologies, and tools that support watershed approaches to nutrient management.
