Director's Insight: Maintaining Sustainability, Promoting Safety

This much is clear: Water is essential to life. How to provide sustainable, safe, and cost effective water to all communities in the most efficient way possible is something Garver aims to make just as clear.

Acquiring the funding to deliver such water through aging infrastructure remains our industry's largest hurdle. There are more than 84,000 anthropogenic chemicals in our society today, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Water Environment & Reuse Federation (WE&RF) reports that more than $532 billion in capital funding is needed for municipal water infrastructure through 2025, less than $5 billion of which is expected to come from the federal government. Indeed, we face a huge challenge.

By actively developing the best technologies, assisting regulators to protect the environment, and working through multiple funding avenues, Garver remains committed to taking on these challenges.

Our Water Technology Team (WTT) and Water Design Center (WDC), both composed of respected industry experts, lead national American Water Works Association (AWWA) and WE&RF research projects, and specialize in the design and implementation of the best technologies in treatment and plant design. And, as you'll read in this issue, by partnering with Dr. Shane Snyder and the Water & Energy Sustainable Technology (WEST) Center at the University of Arizona to develop the concept for a Direct Potable Reuse advanced process train pilot facility, Garver is proving its commitment to DPR.

Armed with this expertise, Garver is purpose-built and ready now more than ever to address these needs.
