02/21/2017 Water Research Foundation Webcast. This webcast discussed the findings of the project Water and Electric Utility Utility Planning (#4469). This study investigated integrated planning across water and electric utility systems in the USA, Australia, and Canada inclusive of: water supply, water treatment, water distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, wastewater reuse distribution, water retail use, electric power generation, electric power transmission, and electric power wholesale and retail distribution and use. The webcast discussed a range of activities that feature integrated planning efforts between water and electric utilities; identify barriers, opportunities, and sector needs for integrated planning; help water and electric utilities understand the similarities in their respective planning goals; and provide recommendations for water and electric utilities to engaged in water and electric utility integrated planning (WEUIP) activities.
This project was cosponsored by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
