Water & Waste Water Track Overview

Water and wastewater (W&WW) utilities across North America continue to explore new and innovative ways to further improve their performance in light of emerging challenges and opportunities.

Our 2018 W&WW Track is focused on the below challenges and opportunities. Learn what others are doing and how you can apply this to your own facility…

There is an emerging trend among wastewater utilities to achieve net zero energy status. WW is being increasingly recognised as a valued source of renewable resources and the facilities are viewed as Renewable Resource Recovery Facilities. Use of biogas produced at WW treatment plants to generate combine power and heat is one such viable option.

In recent years, public concerns over the release of odours from facilities such as pulp and paper, oil and gas, agricultural operation, compositing, wastewater treatment plants and collection system have significantly increased. The release of unpleasant odours can lead to nuisance and annoyance within the surrounding communities. More and more WW utilities are now paying increased attention to odour management and monitoring solutions and employing them as deemed fit.

It is estimated that more than $80 billion is needed to repair and replace Canada’s aging drinking water, storm water and wastewater infrastructure. The practice of asset management has gained significant importance in infrastructure management among utilities.

Increased automation at W&WW facilities has highlighted the need for resiliency in control interface system for a quick recovery from failures.
