The WateReuse Research Foundation presented its Leadership Award to Pentair, as the two organizations have collaborated on studies that examine graywater regulatory issues, nano-material research, monitoring and reliability for potable reuse applications, and membrane integrity.
ALEXANDRIA, VA, May 7, 2015 -- During a recent ceremony at its 19th Annual Water Reuse & Desalination Research Conference, the WateReuse Research Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization that conducts research to improve the treatment, distribution and acceptance of water reuse, presented its Leadership Award to Pentair, a provider of products, services and solutions for water and other fluids, thermal management and equipment protection.
WateReuse and Pentair have collaborated on studies that have examined graywater regulatory issues, nano-material research, monitoring and reliability for potable reuse applications, and membrane integrity testing, among other issues. In December 2014, the organizations renewed their partnership to develop research projects focused on human and environmental risks associated with existing and proposed innovative agricultural reuse concepts.
The Leadership Award was accepted by Dr. Phil Rolchigo, who is vice president for Technology at Pentair and vice chair of the WateReuse Research Advisory Committee, which provides scientific guidance and sets the agenda for the WateReuse research program. WateReuse Executive Director Melissa Meeker commented, "Our partnership with Pentair is producing information and real solutions that will help communities across the country and around the world develop resilient water supplies today and for years to come."
