The lounge will feature compelling programming and a wide range of exhibitors and networking opportunities that focus on leading-edge technologies and methodologies that are shaping the future of the water industry.
Today’s water utilities are compelled to do more with less. Innovative solutions are needed to address ever-increasing challenges related to drinking water quality, the environment, infrastructure renewal, and utility management.
But finding and implementing the right solutions isn’t always easy. Common barriers include cultural factors, organizational silos, limited resources, and risk aversion. Innovative solutions can require buy-in and collaboration from multiple stakeholders—both inside and outside of the organization.
