🕐 2 min read

The Water Research Foundation (WRF) announced on June 12 at the American Water Works Association’s Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE17) that the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) was awarded the 2017 Outstanding Subscriber Award for Applied Research.

The WRF’s Outstanding Subscriber Award for Applied Research is given to a utility that applies WRF research successfully to produce positive change in their water treatment, management or delivery processes.

WRF is a nonprofit research cooperative that aims to work with subscribers, utilities and stakeholders to promote and further water science to protect both the environment and public health.

TRWD was honored at the WRF Annual Subscriber breakfast during ACE17 along with the city of Calgary, which received the same award, and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s Stuart Krasner, who received the 2017 Dr. Pankaj Parekh Research Innovation Award.

“A large part of the Water Research Foundation’s success depends on partnerships with remarkable leaders in the water community, like those we honored today,” said Rob Renner, Chief Executive Officer of the Water Research Foundation, in a news release. “Mr. Krasner and the professionals at the city of Calgary and TRWD have contributed so much to WRF’s research efforts over many years. We are proud of their work and grateful for their achievements.”

Award recipients are chosen through nominations made by WRF’s Board of Directors, staff, subscribers, researchers and more, with the Board of Directors’ Awards Committee selecting the winners. Winners are honored for their contributions to the water community through innovation, research and more.

Established in 1924, TWRD has three offices in Fort Worth, with two on E. Northside Drive and the third on North Shore Drive.

TWRD owns four reservoirs and has constructed more than 249 miles of pipelines, floodway levees and Trinity River Trails. Additionally, they have a 2,000-acre Dallas-Fort Worth wetland water reuse project which aims to increase water supplies.

“TRWD has always been an organization looking for a better path. Being recognized for the fact that we take great advantage of working with WRF on our system and operations shows that we’re really supporting our customers by being progressive in what we do,” said David Marshall, Engineering Services Director at Tarrant Regional Water District, in the release.
