Decentralized Systems: Our Approach

WERF developed a Decentralized Research Advisory Council (DRAC) made up of leaders in industry, government, and the private sector to determine the annual projects and priorities for research in decentralized environmental science and engineering, to increase the body of peer-reviewed knowledge in this area.  Research projects include guidance for establishing responsible management entities, the performance of treatment technologies, remote sensing, watershed models, and influent characteristics.  Communicating the results of the research in a user-friendly fashion is a key focus.
