WERF accepting urban planning proposals

Aug. 18, 2015

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Submissions will be accepted until Sept. 23.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Water professionals interested in urban planning can submit proposals to the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) to help with a new project, according to a press release.

The research effort will explore best practices and how to plan integration of the full spectrum of water services with the urban development process, noted the release. It will aim to identify:

  • Existing urban planning processes that connect to water resource planning and management
  • Disconnects and barriers in the current approach
  • Effective ways to bridge the disconnect(s) between urban planners and water resource managers

Researchers “will identify concepts for the integration of sustainable water resource management and urban planning activities for professionals in both sectors to use,” reported the release. Proposals for the project, called Integrating Water Systems with Urban Planning and Design (SIWM5R13), will be accepted until Sept. 23.

Contact WERF Program Director Theresa Connor at [email protected] for more information.

WERF is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to research issues related to wastewater and stormwater, stated the release.
