Join us as we delve into all things Urban Water at the Industry Breakfast and Symposium in July. Two events, one day, an opportunity not to be missed!

Breakfast Session 
At the breakfast session join your colleagues in an interactive panel discussion, where you will gain a better understanding of the current issues and challenges facing storm water management. You'll explore the implications of the new state-wide planning scheme and a changing climate on the way urban storm water is managed, how we expect it to change, and what our community needs to know.

This event is proudly organised AWA Tasmanian Branch Committee in partnership with the Institute of Public Works and Engineering Tasmania (IPWEA).

The breakfast session will feature a panel discussion of industry experts, facilitated by Kathryn Pugh, City of Launceston.
