To honor some of our most influential utility and research partners, we established two annual awards: the Outstanding Subscriber Award for Applied Research and the Dr. Pankaj Parekh Research Innovation Award. Our continued success in providing relevant and trusted research is dependent on the expertise and aspirations of our subscribers and research partners. Their commitment to supporting our work to advance the science of water is invaluable to the water community.

The Outstanding Subscriber Award for Applied Research honors subscribing utilities that have made notable improvements to their treatment, delivery, and/or management processes through the successful application of WRF research.

The Dr. Pankaj Parekh Research Innovation Award honors researchers and research teams who have made significant contributions to advancing the science of water through WRF-sponsored research.
 
 

The Water Research Foundation is now soliciting nominations for the
2015 Water Research Foundation awards.

Anyone, including but not limited to subscribers, researchers, staff, and other partners, can nominate qualified individuals and organizations for these awards. Only nominations submitted via WRF’s website will be accepted.
