The American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) announced that registration is now open for its first Water Infrastructure Conference & Exposition to take place in Atlanta Oct. 26 to 29, 2014.
The conference and exposition will focus on water and wastewater infrastructure rehabilitation or replacement needs. It will also concentrate on factors that contribute to increasing demands on water and wastewater utilities such as shifting population patterns and man-made and natural threats.
Conference topics will be separated into four relevant tracks for employees of utilities and consulting firms to concentrate on essential water infrastructure planning, reinvestment strategies, critical infrastructure protection through emergency preparedness planning and the application of heightened physical security and cybersecurity measures.
Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to register for three Sunday workshops covering asset management and SCADA and distribution systems. A complimentary workshop on disaster management will also be presented by FEMA and TEEX.
Full-conference attendee registration includes two lunches, one networking reception, technical sessions and access to the exhibit hall with education sessions on the show floor.
