The Water Supply Industry is very conservative in adopting major changes in water supply treatment. An increased number of regulations and an accelerated regulatory agenda has the potential for revolutionizing this field. Technology transfer and information diffusions will be very important in helping the water utilities meet these new regulations. EPA and other agencies are investing heavily in technology transfer. The author suggests a Drinking Water Innovative Technology Program as a mechanism for accelerating information production.
