Stormwater 2018 Conference: Working Together, Building Tomorrow

Stormwater Australia and the Stormwater 2018 Conference Committee invites you to join them in Sydney in October 2018 for what will be the highlight of the stormwater calendar.

With over 300 delegates anticipated, it will be the one stop shop for industry professionals looking to keep abreast of contemporary practice, share ideas with their peers and make new contacts that can be invaluable in their everyday work.

Expect a program that will leave you wiser, better networked with a little bit of fun thrown in along the way.  As with previous conferences, we envision delegates and presenters to be drawn from a mix of practitioners’ working at the ‘coal face,’ new and emerging science and presentations on policy from around the country.

The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities is the major sponsor for the conference Welcome Drinks. We are excited to announce that as part of this event the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities will be launching a new case study on the innovative Orange City Council Stormwater Harvesting Scheme.

This scheme was the first large scale example of stormwater treatment for indirect potable (drinking water) reuse in NSW, if not Australia. Large wetlands were constructed as part of the solution which not only provide an environmentally friendly, municipal water treatment solution, but also provide habitat for a range of native flora and fauna. This is a truly great example of a project that meets the conference theme of 'Research to Reality'.

Entertainment

Andy Nelson.jpg

Andy Nelson is a highly talented singer/songwriter who is developing an ever expanding fan base across the Central West of NSW and beyond. Having only recently taken a long held love of playing music beyond his family and friends to public venues, his acoustic mix of covers and originals have struck a chord with audiences.

Andy has a rare knack of being able to read an audience and engage with them through his music, with his passion for the songs being infectious to audiences.

"I started to play guitar towards the end of high school and from that moment I realised I had found something that I have a true passion for. Something that you can go to and not have to think about anything else that's going on, just immerse yourself in playing that instrument."

B Town BBQ - upstairs at The Oxford Hotel, corner of William and Piper Streets, Bathurst is the venue for our conference Welcome Drinks event. A food and beverage package has been organised including a variety of finger food and beverages for the duration of the event. Please contact the conference organisers if you are planning to attend and have any dietary requirements.

Please note that the B Town BBQ venue is not open for meals following the conclusion of this event.
