WRF, WEF launch Intelligence Water Systems Challenge

Feb. 2, 2024
The 2024 IWS Challenge will see finalists competing for a grand prize of $10,000, with team registration due April 22, 2024.

The Water Research Foundation (WRF) and Water Environment Federation (WEF) have launched the sixth annual Intelligence Water Systems (IWS) Challenge.

As technology advances, water systems are using IWS to collect more complex and detailed data that measure key process indicators and facilitate system operation. This growing store of big data may deliver value in unforeseen ways as utilities work to address more complicated matters.

The Challenge encourages the adoption of intelligent water technologies by demonstrating the ability of IWS to effectively leverage data to enhance decision making. The competition provides an opportunity for teams of students, professionals, and/or technology aficionados to showcase their ideas and innovations.

The 2024 IWS Challenge team registration deadline is April 22, 2024. The finalists will be competing for a grand prize of $10,000 at the WEFTEC 2024 conference in New Orleans, LA, on October 7, 2024.
