Participate in Research

Project Advisory Committees

Project Advisory Committees (PACs) are assigned to every Foundation research project. PACs monitor and advise research projects at every step of the way. The deadline for the 2024 Research Priority Program has passed, but you may still express interest in future opportunities. 

Utility Participation in Research

Utility Participation in Research (UPIR) provides utilities with the opportunity to serve as test facilities, provide water samples, respond to surveys, loan equipment, or share staff expertise on research projects. Participating utilities gain firsthand information on the study and benefit from working with researchers and others in the water community.

Utilities may still volunteer for projects once RFPs have been released. Objectives for each RFP will provide more information about the goals of each project. 

Objectives are also provided for upcoming RFPs.
