AWA Operations Specialist Networks

YOUR OPERATIONS SPECIALIST NETWORK

This Network aims to raise the profile and importance of Operations in the water industry so that Operations has an Australia-wide voice. We therefore provide meaningful networking and knowledge sharing opportunities for all members and run from a committee with strong national representation.  
 
Our Network includes people working in all areas of water industry operations, from the catchments and dams, through to treatment processes - water, wastewater, recycled water, desalination, industrial water - and their associated transport systems, in both public and privately run businesses.  

Objectives are:

Ensure best practice through the review of current practice, new ideas and developments and to encourage adoption of ideas and developments 


To share, connect and inspire operational excellence
 

To develop and deliver 3 webinars per year.
 

To provide a focus on future planning needs regarding water operations
 

To provide a focus on generational change needs regarding water operations
 

To contribute to knowledge about operations in the water industry, based on current practices and into the future (Smart cities and smart Water).
