World Water-Tech North America: Tackling Water Scarcity through Innovation & Collaboration

Now in its 10th year, the World Water-Tech North America Summit returns to Los Angeles in 2022 to accelerate innovation, investment, and collaboration in the North American water ecosystem. Held on September 28-29, the summit will provide water leaders with a platform for high-level discussion, networking, and deal making.

Water resources are increasingly under pressure from population growth, aging infrastructure, and the impacts of climate change. In the US and around the globe, efficiency, conservation, and resilience are more important than ever.

Hosted in California – home to both innovative utilities and the highest concentration of start-ups in the world, World Water-Tech North America will assemble municipal and industrial leaders, regulators, engineering firms, tech pioneers, and investors to collaborate towards creating smarter, more resilient water systems.

An expert speaking faculty featuring water utility executives and the industry’s leading innovators will tackle the critical issues of 2022:

  • Climate Resilience: Innovation to Accelerate Action
  • Pathway to Net Zero: Decarbonizing Water Systems
  • One Water Movement: Bridging Siloes & Strengthening Partnerships
  • Stormwater Management: Capture, Treatment & Reuse
  • Water Reuse: Decentralized & Onsite Solutions for Drought Resilience
  • Circular Systems: Exploring the Potential of Nutrient Recovery
  • Big Data: The Value of Real-Time Analytics
  • Water Quality: Contaminant Monitoring, Detection & Elimination
  • Leakage: Predictive Technologies for Water Loss Prevention
  • Financing: Driving More Capital into Water Innovation

Whether joining in person or virtually, networking is made easy via our online platform where all delegates will be able to meet and collaborate to forge partnerships and develop ideas critical to move the water industry forward.

Water reuse is a principal solution to the challenges of water access, affordability, and resiliency. During this 60-minute webcast water reuse experts will discuss water recycling’s role in affordability through a national and local context.  Attendees will learn about essential investments in water recycling programs throughout the nation that successfully help mitigate the water supply consequences of climate change, support economic stability and growth, and ensure broader water accessibility and affordability, particularly in disadvantaged communities. The webcast will dive deeper into a recently published Texas case study looking at onsite water recycling’s role in affordable housing units conducted by the National Wildlife Federation. Following presentations, attendees are encouraged to engage the panelists in a question-and-answer segment.
