About WTA The Danish Water Technology Alliance (WTA) is a Danish outreach program providing specialized knowhow on innovative water technology solutions. The Alliance partners include public Danish water utilities, regulators and leading technology and service providers. WTA’s expertise covers the whole water cycle from water resource management and water distribution to wastewater, sewage, and stormwater. Background Water is an increasingly important topic both globally and in North America. Pressure on regional water supplies, new water management strategies and high water loss are dominant features in water scarce regions. On the wastewater side, water quality requirements and high energy costs for treatment are predominant themes. Many cities face challenges with heavy rainfall and sea level rise. The Danish water sector is among the most innovative in the world. Through decades of stringent work, the Danes have achieved sustainable groundwater management, low water loss, net energy positive wastewater treatment plants and liveable city solutions. Services The main goal of the WTA is to connect to North American water professionals with the aim of sharing Danish know-how and foster collaboration. Through local visits, WTA provides specialized knowledge about Danish solutions. WTA hosts workshops and seminars locally in

WTA facilitates and supports collaboration, pilot - and flagship projects. The Team WTA is a part of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Trade Council.
