Design your day by selecting education sessions, roundtable discussions and mini-courses in four specialized streams: Water Distribution, Wastewater Collection, Water Treatment, and Wastewater Treatment.

This one day event contains:

Education Sessions

The morning portion of the event features presentations from industry experts in all specialized streams. From leak detection programs, to flushable wipes, to corrosion, to UV disinfection in wastewater, our experts will present on some of the most pressing issues for operators today.

Tricks & Traps Discussions

Do you find conversation helpful in understanding an issue or working through a problem? Join one of our four facilitated roundtable discussions to explore specific industry challenges and solutions.


If you love hands-on learning, then our 90-minute mini-courses are for you! The afternoon portion of the event provides the opportunity to experience latest technology and techniques in an interactive classroom setting.


Introduced to British Columbia at the 2017 Annual Conference in Victoria, and brought over from South Africa, this game challenges you to create a grid from pipes that distribute three litres of water equally to three different reservoirs. A hit at the conference and available for you to try!

Trade Show

Learn about the latest tools and equipment at your own pace at the trade show. Wander amongst the booths during the lunch and reception and make connections with manufacturers and suppliers across the industry.
