Now in its 18th year, 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. The new format in 2018 allows attendees the flexibility to log in to view individual or multiple presentations, all without leaving the office. Attendees can tune in to watch presentations live or view them later.

Registration is complimentary for all attendees.

How It Works

The conference is broken into a two-part series – one in May and the other in November. Each series  features four weekly sessions throughout the month. Each session will offer presentations from leading experts on water asset management topics and will provide both theoretical and practical information. Each presentation will conclude with live Q&A with the presenters.

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 be available for an additional cost.

Who Should Register/Attend? 

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 management professionals, as well as engineers and consultants.
