    in the decentralized wastewater and stormwater treatment fields ABOUT The Decentralized Water Resources Collaborative DWRC more formally known as the National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project NDWRCDP is a cooperative effort funded by the U S EPA to support research and development on decentralized wastewater and stormwater systems The DWRC is committed to advancing knowledge science and training in decentralized systems in order to build the capacity of organizations and individuals to appropriately implement them To truly advance the state of the decentralized field it requires not only the work of engineers and technical specialists but also educators regulators managers and others all working together to solve problems Therefore the DWRC carries out its mission by conducting research in three broad topical areas Environmental Science and Engineering Management Economics and Policy Training and Education The cooperative partners on the DWRC provide a diverse approach whose breadth and expertise exceeds the capabilities of any single organization The partnership includes Water Environment Research Foundation WERF Coalition of Alternative Wastewater Treatment CAWT Consortium of Institutes for Decentralized Wastewater Treatment CIDWT Electric Power Research Institute EPRI National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association NOWRA National Rural Electric Cooperative Association NRECA WERF serves as the lead

    Water Resources Collaborative DWRC The DWRC was created to address the need for cost effective water resource management in rural and suburban areas DWRC work has been carried out in two phases Washington University at St Louis administered Phase 1 1997 2003 The DWRC conducted nearly 30research and development projects in Phase 1 All of the reports and products developed are available on this website WERF administers Phase 2 2003 2010 of the DWRC through a Cooperative Agreement with EPA WERF and its partners formed a Decentralized Systems Advisory Committee DSAC to help evaluate national needs and provide guidance relative to decentralized funding priorities DSAC partners each focus on different high priority research areas WERF through its Decentralized Research Advisory Council DRAC determines projects and priorities in the area of environmental science and engineering CAWT EPRI and NRECA focus on management economics and policy issues CIDWT and NOWRA have taken the lead in the arena of training and education Together the collective and coordinated efforts of the DWRC partners work to fill a broad array of information and training gaps critical to the decentralized field The WERF Board of Directors approves all projects proposed by the DRAC and DSAC There

    Since its inception DWRC strategic research planning has been guided by input from dedicated decentralized systems experts and practitioners representing a broad array of perspectives including municipalities academics regulators consultants manufacturers and others During Phase 1 the DWRC Steering Committee assisted in developing the 2002 2003 NDWRCDP Training Research and Development Plan to guide research funding priorities The plan synthesized recommendations from research needs white papers a Future Mapping retreat and other sources In Phase 2 WERF established two advisory bodies the DSAC and DRAC to help identify critical information gaps in the decentralized field and establish research and development priorities to address these gaps A number of workshops and recommendations from completed research helped guide the DRAC and DSAC processes along the way For example in March 2007 WERF convened a long range research planning workshop in Baltimore that charts a research agenda for integrated sustainable decentralized water infrastructure Workshop participants also developed the Baltimore Charter as a commitment to design new water systems that mimic and work with nature WERF updated the Baltimore list of needs at a brainstorming workshop on Feb 26 2009 in Washington DC which followed a WERF sponsored briefing and discussion on Smart Clean
