Funding Opportunities

Wastewater - Innovative Water Technologies for Lagoon Wastewater Systems in Small Communities

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through the Innovative Water Technology Grant Program, is seeking applications for research to accelerate innovative and alternative wastewater treatment technologies in lagoon/pond systems serving small communities (population less than 10,000) that may require infrastructure improvements to remove nutrients. This new funding opportunity is titled, “Innovative Water Technologies for Lagoon Wastewater Systems in Small Communities Request for Applications (RFA)”.

PA – WV Drinking Water Issues: Virtual Meeting Series

Through the above projects, WVWRI found that it was in a unique role to facilitate needed conversations and information sharing between drinking water operators, regulatory officials, and researchers. To facilitate these conversations, we launched the PA – WV Drinking Water Issues: Virtual Meeting Series. This three-part series took place between October and November of 2021.
