Great Networking Opportunities and Award Receptions

With group lunch events and evening activities, the conference provides numerous networking opportunities for all attendees.  Partnership for Safe Water award presentations are planned throughout the conference to recognize the program’s 2015 award winners.

Take Advantage of the Partnership’s Subscription Dues Discount for Attending the Conference

For utilities thinking of participating in the Partnership for Safe Water program, this is the perfect time to begin your journey toward optimization. That’s because new utility subscribers that attend the conference will receive a 10% discount – or $50 savings (whichever is greater) – on their first year Partnership subscription fees. This potential savings can substantially reduce the cost of Partnership program participation for small systems, and nearly cover the cost of full conference registration for larger systems.

Separate Technical Programs for Treatment Plants & Distribution Systems

Technical tracks will introduce the latest developments in treatment plant and distribution system optimization to participants – from tried and true techniques to innovative tools for water system optimization. Presentations will feature utility success stories, case studies, and prominent speakers from utilities and organizations across North America. Therefore, you will not want to miss this premier optimization event. Continuing education units will also be available for attendees from select states.

We look forward to celebrating the Partnership’s 20th Anniversary with many of you at the 2015 Water System Optimization Conference!
