Wastewater treatment facilities highlighted include City of Los Angeles, DC Water, Northern California's East Bay Mud Municipal District, Las Vegas' Clark County Water Reclamation District, and Gresham, Oregon

Each of these organizations has made improvements to its wastewater treatment operations, facilities, or processes by applying WERF research. It is exciting for us to share their successes with the public since wastewater treatment is rarely in the news.

The Water Environment Research Foundation(WERF) has issued its winter edition of Progress, a quarterly journal of news related to water quality research. In this issue, WERF celebrates successes from implementing WERF’s research at wastewater treatment facilities across the nation.

The examples were drawn from the pool of applicants for WERF’s 2011 Award for Excellence in Innovation.

Among the localities highlighted in this issue are:

•The City of Los Angeles for innovative biosolids disposal and for enhancing greenhouse gas management,
•DC Water for innovative biosolids processing,
•Northern California’s East Bay Municipal Utility District (MUD) for enhancing its sludge processing,
•Las Vegas’ Clark County Water Reclamation District for improving methods of decision making regarding wastewater treatment, and
•Gresham Oregon for pilot testing an integrated asset management program.

“Each of these organizations has made improvements to its wastewater treatment operations, facilities, or processes by applying WERF research,” stated WERF Resource Development Manager, Thomas Yoder. “It is exciting for us to share their successes with the public since wastewater treatment is rarely in the news,” he continued. In 2012 WERF will again accept applications for its Award for Excellence in Innovation. Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2012, and can be obtained at http://www.werf.org.
