2014 Conference

Our industry is unique in many ways. Source waters differ in every possible parameter, with variations in chemical organics and solids, both natural and introduced.

Our receiving waste waters arrive at our plants as various cocktails of domestic, industrial and natural waste.

You are the operations people who provide and maintain the infrastructure to transport our waters, treat it to a safe standard for drinking or meet environmental discharge consents. There are countless challenges in our industry every single day, innovation is often the solution.

The Productivity from Innovation conference is to provide an environment for sharing knowledge and experiences, to inspire innovation within the industry. 

Register to be part of our up coming event.

Rooms at Wairakei are held for conference delegates untill 23rd April. All bookings thereafter will be subject to availability only.

Nominations for our annual awards are now closed and it is pleasing to report that we have received a record number of excellent nominations for all awards this year.
