Utility of the Future


Evesham Municipal Utilities Authority Recognized as Utility of the Future Today

The Evesham Municipal Utilities Authority has received national recognition as a Utility of the Future Today in the area of Partnering & Engagement, and overall Organizational Culture.

The Evesham Municipal Utilities Authority is one of 32 water utilities being recognized for transformational work in community engagement, watershed stewardship, and recovery of resources such as water, energy, and nutrients.

What does “Utility of the Future Today” mean?

The Utility of the Future Today concept is being promoted as water systems face challenges such as aging infrastructure, water pollution, workforce shortages, and impacts of climate change, including drought, floods, storms, and sea level rise. The Utility of the Future Today program was launched in 2016 by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) and the WateReuse Association, with input from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The recognition celebrates the achievements of water utilities that transform from the traditional wastewater treatment system to a resource recovery center and leader in the overall sustainability and resilience of the communities they serve.

“The innovations coming to the water sector present an opportunity for a paradigm shift in the way utilities think about and solve long-standing challenges to clean and reliable water,” said Eileen O’Neill, Executive Director of the Water Environment Federation. “WEF is excited to recognize The Evesham Municipal Utilities Authority for embracing innovative ways to better serve their communities.”
