WEF Envision v1.0 Guidance Manual Now Available
(NEW YORK, NY – December 21, 2016) – The Water Environment Federation (WEF) recently published a guidance manual for the application of the Envision Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System in the planning and design of wastewater collection, water reclamation, stormwater, and biosolids facilities.
Many utilities have embraced the use of Envision as a holistic triple bottom line tool for the planning and design of their facilities, which provides transparency to their decision-making process and documents how non-economic elements were evaluated to supplement cost-based evaluations. This guidance manual serves to provide concepts and methods that utilities can consider in their Envision-based approach to sustainable planning and design.
Evan Bowles, Hazen’s Sustainable Design Services Leader, co-led the authoring and completion of this guidance document, and Aditya Ramamurthy served as a content contributor for Utility Management perspectives.
The manual is available for download here.
