The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) Optimization Program includes both
direct and collaborative research with the intention of optimizing both the liquid treatment and
solids operations at Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs). This paper will report WERF
research that has been completed in three areas: Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP)
benchmarking and best practices in Europe; WWTP benchmarking and best practices in North
America; and a visioning of the WWTP of the Future. That visioning will include an overview of
the WERF report on a visioning workshop attended by international experts.
