The NSW Branch is once again celebrating the Legends of Water for 2019! This is a night not to be missed as we recognise the leaders of the NSW water industry.

The NSW Legends of Water Dinner recognises the achievements of water industry leaders who have not only been committed to creating a more sustainable water future but have dedicated their careers to promoting the importance of water in their respective fields. It’s an iconic annual event that brings together attendees from across the water sector. 

The three NSW Legends of Water for 2019 are:

He is trained in Bioprocess and Environmental Engineering, WHS, Project Management and Training and Assessment.
