35th Annual WateReuse Virtual Symposium Preview Edition

Reaching New Heights in Water Reuse: Don’t Miss the 35th Annual WateReuse Virtual Symposium Experience

Register for the 35th Annual WateReuse Virtual Symposium to learn about the latest developments in water recycling on a fully interactive virtual platform that simulates the experience of attending an in-person event. Join us September 14-16, 2020 for the Symposium’s launch and experience an exciting new way to attend an event, access over 100 hours of technical content, and engage with water reuse professionals around the world.

Envisioning the Future: Water Reuse Charrette

September 16 | 9 am MT

Join U.S. EPA Assistant Administrator for Water Dave Ross to explore strategies for water recycling success in small groups during the Wednesday morning plenary session. This interactive audience experience will explore how communities, businesses, institutions, farmers and others can begin imagining and constructing a future in which water recycling is a central feature.

The exercise begins with a plenary panel to frame the opportunities and challenges for greater adoption of water recycling from diverse perspectives. Panelist Paul Bowen of Coca-Cola will represent the industrial customer, Katherine Jashinski of Austin Water will represent the water scarce community, and David Lipsky of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will represent the water abundant community.

The audience will then move to small breakout discussions for in depth exploration of one of the scenarios—water scarce community, water abundant community, or industrial customer—via video conferencing. Participants will engage with Assistant Administrator Ross, facilitators, and each other to develop a vision, action agenda, and responsibilities.

Upon registering for the Symposium, attendees can pre-select a preferred small group scenario to ensure a seat at the table. Space is limited in each small breakout room.

The Envisioning the Future: Water Reuse Charrette is a prime opportunity for engagement during the 2020 WateReuse Virtual Symposium. Register today!

Engaging, Interactive, and Virtual: An Exciting New Way to Obtain Professional Development and Training

The 35th Annual WateReuse Symposium’s virtual platform makes it easy to navigate between sessions and learn about the latest trends in potable reuse, decentralized systems, workforce development, and finance, as well as spotlight sessions on water reuse research and developments related to federal and state policy. Attendees can add handouts from presenters and exhibitors to a virtual briefcase to download or print.

Upon entering the virtual event space, you will arrive in the lobby where you can greet other attendees via chat and visit the help desk – or navigate to the session rooms, networking lounge, and exhibit hall. Use the platform’s chat features to see who is in a session with you or elsewhere on the platform and strike up conversations with individuals or groups.

The Symposium’s robust program includes over 102 sessions and nearly 300 presenters. Participate in a combination of live and recorded sessions and continue to access the full program through October 24 from the convenience of your own office. The virtue of going virtual is that attendees don’t have to miss any content offerings.

WateReuse Florida Webcast: Exploring Funding Opportunities for Reuse

As pressure continues to build on our water resources and inflation continues to climb there is a need to further implement the cost-effective use of recycled water. In Florida, regulations such as the state’s SB 64 requirement for beneficial reuse, watershed nutrient limits, elimination of ocean outfalls, and limitations on our traditional sources of drinking water are driving our industry to implement solutions quickly that are more expensive than traditional reclaimed water projects. This has driven a demand on State and Federal agency funding. Join our expert panel to learn about a multitude of available funding sources available to municipalities east of the Mississippi. Topics include the application process and what to expect when awarded.
