Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department receives Utility of the Future Today recognition

MIAMI (August 04, 2016)

Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) has been deemed a Utility of the Future Today by a partnership of water sector organizations including the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) and WateReuse—with advisory support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Utility of the Future (UTOTF) Today Joint Recognition Program celebrates the progress and performance of forward-planning wastewater utilities that adopt innovative and resilient business models.

The selection committee, consisting of peer utility leaders, evaluated utilities based on their ability to demonstrate comprehensive engagement in their selected activity areas in a meaningful and vigorous manner. WASD will be recognized at the inaugural Utility of the Future Today Recognition Ceremony taking place September 27, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“Being acknowledged as a Utility of the Future is a meaningful recognition for us,” says WASD Director Lester Sola. “We continually strive to address the resiliency needs of the region by developing proactive approaches to providing services and upgrading our infrastructure to meet current and future demands.”
