Water Environment Research Foundation Offers Funding for Water Quality Research
Deadline: June 1, 2009

The Water Environment Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization that manages independent scientific research on water quality concerns affecting the environment and human health, is offering $100,000 through the Paul L. Busch Award to encourage researchers working in wastewater, water reuse, bio-solids, stormwater, watersheds, and other areas to use their imagination, take risks, and explore new directions for addressing ongoing water quality issues.

Recent award recipients have addressed concerns such as maintaining healthy community waters in which people fish, swim, and play; and improving energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gasses and improve air quality. Past awards are supporting research on the effective removal of endocrine disrupting compounds in waste streams, the creation of self-sustaining microbial fuel cell-based wastewater treatment facilities, and the fate of nanomaterials in wastewater treatment systems.

The WERF Endowment for Innovation in Applied Water Quality Research grants the award to an individual or team. Utilities, universities, environmental firms, and others conducting water quality research or engineering work are encouraged to apply. Applicants may self-nominate or be nominated by a third party.

Interested individuals or teams should visit the WERF Web site for complete program information.
