The American Water Works Research Foundation is requesting proposals for 30 research projects scheduled to be launched in 2003. The projects, with nearly US$ 12 million in funding, focus on a wide range of topics related to the drinking water community.

According to Jim Manwaring, executive director of AwwaRF, this year's project focuses on four strategic goal areas: efficient and customer-responsive organisation, environmental leadership, high-quality water, and infrastructure reliability. "Our studies provide knowledge that utilities and other water professionals can use to continuously enhance operations and improve drinking water quality," Manwaring said.

Proposals must be postmarked by 5 May or 15 July. A complete list of the projects for which proposals are being requested are available on the website at: http://www.awwarf.com.
