To listen to the recent research completed by Stuart Khan and his team on potable water reuse and to understand what Australia can learn from global experience so that we can gain more insight into the potable water reuse for tackling drought and long-term water security.
The Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme, a recycled water project, was constructed by the Queensland Government in response to the severe drought between 2002 to 2009. The A$2.5 billion project is the largest recycled water scheme in Australia. This event offers the opportunity to showcase to our fellow engineers and guests the significant contributions made by those consultants, contractors and others who were involved in the delivery of the WCRWS. The audience will also get to learn about the recent Master Planning work for the WCRWS for its restart, long-term and alternative uses.
Date: Thursday 7 November 2019
Time: 4:30 - 8:00pm
