Guidelines for the Design and Operation of Unit-process, Open-water Wetlands
Released March 21, 2019
ReNUWIt has developed a guidance document for the design and operation of unit-process, open-water (UPOW) wetlands, which are natural systems designed to promote photo- and biologically-mediated water treatment processes. This document synthesizes the findings of recent research on the main treatment mechanisms and performance that occur in UPOW wetlands and provides recommendations for the operation and maintenance of these systems.

Charting New Waters: Ensuring Urban Water Security in Water-Scarce Regions of the United States
Released May 2014
On December 11-13, 2013, The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread, along with partner ReNUWit, convened experts from different parts of the country to discuss the implications of chronic and episodic water scarcity on our nation's water infrastructure – with the goal of moving beyond the "case-by-case" conversation to one about how cities can transform their infrastructure and management strategies. The resulting report identifies key principles of water security and explores components of good strategy and innovative water supply options while building the case for transformation.
