NEIWPCC’s 2023 annual report is now available, both online and in print. The report features accomplishments from throughout the fiscal year and is organized around NEIWPCC’s core values: leadership, collaboration, education, service and science. 

Highlights from the leadership section include the formation of a new BioHub group, which met several times throughout the year. The members brainstormed a path forward for establishing a regional Biosolids Technology Hub that would serve as a space for the testing of new residual destruction technologies.  

NEIWPCC provided space for collaboration among water quality professionals and other stakeholders from across the Northeast by hosting more than 20 different workgroups focused on critical topics related to water. In addition, NEIWPCC ran four national and regional conferences that brought together participants from around the country.  

Environmental education is a priority for NEIWPCC, and summer interns were hired to teach and promote environmental awareness in several communities. NEIWPCC also continued to provide trainings for wastewater operators, including a revamped online self-paced course on Wet Weather Operations. 

Throughout the year, NEIWPCC offered services that benefited the entire Northeast, including submitting letters commenting on proposed water policies to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Congress on behalf of the states.  

NEIWPCC also supported research, monitoring and outreach initiatives that help to advance science, including a Hudson River shoreline mapping survey, an economical study of the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary and an analysis of mercury contamination in fish tissue. NEIWPCC also funded the planning and organizing of 10 events that allowed volunteers to pull invasive water chestnut from Massachusetts and Rhode Island waterways. 

The annual report also provides a financial summary of NEIWPCC’s operating revenues.
