WEFTEC 2017 technical sessions offered a range of industrial wastewater topics

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) held its 90th annual meeting in Chicago on Sept. 30 to Oct. 4. The technical meeting was from Oct. 2 to Oct. 4, but many workshops and specialty topic and committee meetings were held during the several days before the conference. WEF is the organization of wastewater professionals. Historically, the primary focus of conferences has been on municipal wastewater treatment, but sessions included drinking water topics, water reuse, which links wastewater and drinking water science and technology, and several sessions on industrial wastewater treatment.

Interestingly, on Oct. 10, the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation announced a merger with the Water Research Foundation, which consolidates nonfederal water-related research formerly from those three organizations (drinking water, wastewater and water reuse) in one location, effective Jan. 1, 2018.
