How It Works

The Water Asset Management Conference was first launched in 2001 with the goal of convening practitioners in the fields of water, wastewater and stormwater management to explore issues, trends, best practices and new technologies in this ever-evolving arena. It has been co-presented with Virginia Tech and has been produced in various formats over the years. In 2018, the conference changed to an online format to make content more easily accessible those in the utility sector.

The conference is now hosted entirely in a virtual format, allowing attendees the flexibility to log in to view single or multiple presentations, all without leaving the office – or the home office. Registration is complimentary for all attendees.

The conference will feature four sessions. Each session lasts two hours and will feature two presentations (3o mins each) from leading experts on water asset management topics plus a live panel discussion (1 hr.).

Once you register, you can log in to watch any session within the series. If you miss a presentation, don’t worry – you can view recorded, archived versions anytime. CEUs will also be available for an additional cost.

Who Should Register?

The Water Asset Management Conference is geared toward executive-level decision makers of water, wastewater and stormwater utilities – CEOs, CFOs, directors, general managers, superintendents and asset managers. It also presents relevant information to engineers, consultants and service providers.
