NSW Socialising Potable Water Reuse Seminar

NSW Socialising Potable Water Reuse Seminar
This Seminar follows on from the sold-out 2016 “Water Recycling for Potable Reuse” Technical Seminar, and focuses on the social barriers and challenges of implementing potable water reuse.

Socialising Potable Water Reuse

To-date, proposed use of recycled wastewater for drinking has been met with significant public concern and controversy and is likely to remain a contentious issue in the future. The Australian Water Association has assembled a panel of varying experiences and views on the social barriers to implementing potable water reuse in Australia and Globally.

Attendees can look forward to drinks and canapes on arrival, after which the panel will have four thought leaders from the industry engaging in discussion with audience participation. The event will finish off with a Q&A session and informal networking to continue the conversations.
