A new standard of practice has been established for water audit validation, as a result of Water Research Foundation Project #4639A (2016) and the regulatory adoption of validation requirements in three U.S. states since 2015. The result is a standardized method for conducting a summary level validation review for the AWWA water audit, known as a Level 1 validation. States who have adopted water audit validation as a requirement have naturally evolved to establish a validator certification program. The validator certification programs empower those in each state to conduct validations, providing a sustainable path for the long-term water over state-funded validation. This presentation will include key points of the WRF 4639 validation methodology, states with mandated water audit validation and outcomes of the Georgia and California validation certification programs to date.
