WaterMatch Makers University Program

Universities in the WaterMatch Maker Program are participating in a global effort to promote beneficial reuse of municipal effluent. Each university is working to identify and add municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) in their area onto the global WaterMatch map. The universities are contacting their local municipalities to request that they provide Facility Profile information so that potential water users can contact them.

What are the Elements of the WaterMatch Maker University Program?

WaterMatch seeks to leverage the tremendous power of social networking, university networks and their local connections with communities to build a comprehensive, global map of new water resources. WaterMatch offer the universities a way to build water awareness with their students and allows the students to constructively engage in their communities.

There are four steps:
  • Step 1: Register - Adopt a zone of engagement
  • Step 2: Site Locations - Identify municipal WWTPs in your area and add to WaterMatch Map
  • Step 3: Facility Profiles - Contact municipalities/WWTPs to help them fill in their Facility Profiles
  • Step 4: Progress Reporting – Provide updates on your University Profile on the WaterMatch Maker webpage and through social media
  • Optional Step 5: Hold a WaterMatch Meet-Up Event on Campus – hold a campus event to raise awareness
    on water conservation.
Future phases of collaboration could include hosting WaterMatch Meet-Ups between municipalities and industries/agriculture in an area or contacting industries/agriculture to promote the potential of water reuse in their operations.
