Summer 2020

HWEA will be the organization of dedicated and knowledgeable professionals
recognized for preserving and enhancing the water environment in the Pacific Island Region.

Arelatively new and colorful lapel pin is becoming more common throughout Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Virginia) events and throughout the water sector. This 25-mm (1-in.) circle is decked out with 17 multi-colored pie slices. It evokes the vision of an old Trivial Pursuit game piece on steroids and packs a lot of meaning and promise for making the world a better place by 2030.

As the world adapts to dealing with coronavirus – social distancing, working from home, and self-quarantining if ill – the perceived hoarding and scarcity of toilet paper has emerged almost as a joke. But, if people start flushing unsuitable materials, the results will be anything but funny.

WEF Resources & Efforts

Even during the coronavirus pandemic, water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) cannot cease operations even for a moment. It remains critical, then, for WRRF managers to develop actionable plans to ensure continuity of operations despite potential staffing shortages and supply chain disruptions.
