WERF seeking proposals to explore urban planning best practices

The Water Environment Research Foundation is seeking proposals to bring together urban planning and water sector professionals to document best practices and explore how planning for the full spectrum of water services can be integrated with the urban development process.

ALEXANDRIA, VA, Aug. 17, 2015 -- The Water Environment Research Foundation has announced that it is seeking proposals to bring together urban planning and water sector professionals to document best practices and explore how planning for the full spectrum of water services can be integrated with the urban development process.

This research effort seeks to identify:

  • Existing urban planning processes that connect to water resources planning and management
  • Barriers and disconnections in the current approach
  • Effective ways to bridge the disconnections between urban planners and water resources managers

The researchers for this project, titled "Integrating Water Systems with Urban Planning and Design (SIWM5R13)," will identify concepts for the integration of sustainable water resource management and urban planning activities for professionals in both sectors to use. Proposals are due no later than September 23, 2015.

For more information, contact WERF Program Director Theresa Connor at tconnor@werf.org.
