“We’re very pleased to be able to welcome key government Ministers to this year’s conference, especially given the ground-breaking reforms that the government is embarking on and the impact they will have across the entire country,” says Water New Zealand CEO John Pfahlert.
“This year one of two pre conference workshops will help update those working in the sector with the likely impact of the new regulatory process, while another will look at issues around wastewater – a key aspect of the Government’s recently announced Freshwater Programme.”
“International speakers include experts on urban water and the impact around climate change and supplying safe water without chlorination.”
The conference is the biggest event in the three waters calendar with more than 600 delegates from the sector and170 exhibits on display.
