To share information on EPA's water systems research.
Water systems challenged by limited resources, aging infrastructure, shifting demographics, climate change, and extreme weather events need transformative approaches to meet public health and environmental goals, while optimizing water treatment and maximizing resource recovery and system energy efficiency. EPA’s water systems research aims to push forward the next generation of technological, engineering, and process advances to maintain safe and sustainable water resources for humans and the environment, while also augmenting and improving water resources. EPA’s water system efforts focus on breaking down traditional barriers between drinking water and wastewater (now referred to as resource water) with an emphasis on research that encompasses the entire water cycle to improve the way we manage water.
