Coming Soon … The first Esri Water Conference

After 20 years of Team Water/Wastewater meetings, we’re expanding to the Esri Water Conference with more opportunities than ever. It’s the same great meeting you remember, only better.

In addition to the valuable collaboration and networking you’ve come to expect, you’ll also hear proven best practices for emergency response, sustainable operations, capital-improvement planning, and customer transparency. Your peers will also explain how they’re managing limited resources in the face of growing demands from regulators and stakeholders. And while you’re at it, you’ll also pick up tips about everything from water main breaks to field crew management.

Join us in Portland as we take the next step to make water utilities smarter.
