The millennium drought lingers in the back of Australian memories. A period of abundant water supply has distracted us from another impending dry period. A global reminder from Cape Town has resurged national interest as Australia looks to find better ways to adapt to our extreme climate and build better strategies around water system resilience.
The Australian Water Association has organised a technical seminar with speakers with diverse experience from Australia and abroad.
The night will commence with light refreshments and informal networking, after which the seminar will begin. We will have talks from four industry leaders who will speak on various areas. This will be followed by a panel session where the audience can direct their questions.
TOPICS WILL INCLUDE
- City resilience for extreme environments
- DPI’s new policy on water resilience
- Managing water quality in extreme events
- Updates from South Africa on Cape Town’s “Day Zero”
• Suzanna Remmerswaal Sustainability & Resilience, AECOM
• Michael Wrathall - Knowledge Coordination, NSW Department of Industry Water
• Prof. Stuart Khan - Water Research Centre, UNSW
• Dr. James Cullis/Mike Killick - Group Global Services, Aurecon
