Operational reliability of water and wastewater utilities depends on both having sufficient staff in mission-critical jobs and preparing that staff to do the technical work essential for public health and safety. A year-long Water Research Foundation project on the potential benefits of regional collaboration was conducted and called for a regional response in the San Francisco Bay Area. The result was the creation of BAYWORK – established in 2009. BAYWORK is open to all Bay region water and wastewater utilities, many of who have significantly contributed to its research, workshops, and product development activities.
