Disguised as a conference for technical wizards and chemistry boffins, Industrial Waters 2017 will open up the discussion around water, its ownership, its use and misuse, and how to monitor and measure its discharge for better water quality outcomes.

Industrial Waters 2017 is a three-day conference in Palmerston North and will bring expertise from around the country to share issues, ideas and solutions. While essentially dealing with the aftermath of water use, the conference opens with a conversation between WaterCare Ltd chief executive Raveen Jaduram and former AgResearch chief executive Andy West about the ownership of this natural resource.

The organisation was established strategies and address the issues of liquid waste and its effect on the receiving environment.

Up and down the country, farmers, local government decision-makers and industries are trying to find ways to reduce their impact on our waterways. Whether it be through better use of technology, diverse charging regimes or front-end treatment of factory waste, these future opportunities have financial impacts on communities reliant on economic growth though jobs and productivity.

NZTIWF president Geoff Young said he was excited to be holding the conference in the lower North Island and have the support of Palmerston North mayor Grant Smith. “It does not matter where we take this conference, whether cities, districts or small rural towns, we know there are communities struggling to find better solutions for waste and storm water discharge.”

“The conference is interactive and allows guests to ask questions of the experts which, in turn, enables understanding of processes for better decision making”, Mr Young said.
