On Wednesday, March 27 Acting Assistant Administrator for Water Nancy Stoner released a Blueprint for Integrating Technology Innovation into the National Water Program at an event at the University of South Florida with Jeff Eger of the Water Environment Federation. The Office of Water is committed to fostering the development and use of innovative technology to advance EPA's goal of clean and safe water and sustainable water utilities. This blueprint highlights the EPA Office of Water's plans to advance and promote technology innovation across various water programs. As indicated in the blueprint, the document will continue to evolve with greater collaboration across EPA and with the full spectrum of external partners. Accelerating innovation and technology will help address the complex challenges facing America's water resources. Technology innovation can increase sustainability, be an economic driver, help businesses thrive, create jobs and be a source of U.S. exports.
