NT Water in the Bush  2017
The Northern Territory Branch is delighted to present the 28th Water in the Bush Conference, this year to be held on Thursday 12th & Friday 13th October 2017.

Water in the Bush brings together water professionals, the community and industry from across northern Australia. Water in the Bush is the annual event to renew friendships and networks, and participate in the conversations on the environment, economic development, customers and the community and the Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2016 the event attracted over 180 delegates and included presentations from local, interstate and international water professionals.

The NT Water Awards will be presented at the conference dinner on Thursday 12 October.
