QLD Technical Meeting - May 2019
Join the QLD branch as we co-host a technical meeting with Engineers Australia on the lessons learned when sewerage assets fail to meet their intended purposes.
Come and hear from Peter Smith about what we can learn from instances when operations of sewerage network didn't go according to plan.
Sometimes when operating water and sewerage networks, things don’t go according to plan: assets can fail, errors are made, designs aren’t always right. Learning from these experiences is critical to ensure we can design and build robust assets that meet customer and community expectations and fulfill our purpose of enriching the quality of life. Drawing from his experience in operations of sewerage networks, Peter will take us through a variety of these instances when things didn’t go according to plan, and what we can learn from them.
Peter Smith - Manager Sewer Networks Operations & Service Delivery - Queensland Urban Utilities
Peter has over thirteen years’ experience in the water industry, over half of which has been spent in various network operational roles in the utility sector. Working in Operations, Peter has enjoyed the opportunity to improve processes and asset performance while delivering better outcomes for the community and the environment. Having helped to pull teams through many asset failures, Peter has a wealth of experience in solution development and maintaining continuity of services in emergency incidents. Peter’s current role is Manager Sewer Networks for Queensland Urban Utilities, having responsibility for the management of a vast sewerage network, including over 9,000 km of pipes and 335 sewerage pump stations.
