Two of RETTEW’s clients this week were named to a prestigious program honoring utilities for innovation, sustainable practices, and energy efficiency.

The Hermitage Municipal Authority and the University Area Joint Authority, both serving customers in Pennsylvania, were inducted into the inaugural class of the Utility of the Future Today program. The program was formed by a partnership of water sector agencies, including the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, the Water Environment Federation, the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation, and the WateReuse Association, with guidance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A committee of peers reviewed eligible utilities for inclusion, and selected 61 public and private utilities from across the globe for its first class of inductees.

The authorities were chosen for their commitment to water reuse, biosolids reuse, community engagement, energy generation and recovery, and nutrient recovery. RETTEW partnered with these authorities to help them achieve their energy reuse and sustainability goals, and through analysis of possible system updates, design of complex sustainable treatment systems, and guidance of operational best practices. Working together with RETTEW, these organizations have made significant impact on their local communities and demonstrate their leadership within the water and wastewater industry, while moving move toward a more sustainable future!
