Clean water utilities are moving beyond Clean Water Act compliance and proactively changing the regulatory landscape. They are embracing their roles as technology developers and incubators, job creators and economic engines within their communities. This ongoing transformation is leading to more complex treatment and resource recovery systems that utility managers and staff must operate and maintain. New sensors and monitoring technology are leading to data-rich environments that improve decision-making, but also potentially add to the required management skillset. With new skills needed and an increasingly connected and informed community, smart utilities are working to address the complex workforce, communications and financial challenges that can often accompany efforts to innovate.
