Our 2018 Conference  looked at a wide range of Smart Water Treatment and Watershed Management issues, including Smart Water Technologies in use or development by Water Utilities, Harmful Algal Blooms and Algal Toxins,  issues such as Lead, DBPs and Pharmaceuticals, Regulatory issues and the next generation of technologies, regulations, treatments and processes to handle these issues. We also looked at the the role of Smart Water technologies in new methods of water treatment, source water management, and watershed management.

Speakers included the  Ohio EPA, US Geological Survey, Water Research Foundation , Utilities, Water Engineering firms , Universities and other water organizations .

The Conference looks to provide useful insights, methods and technologies, education, science and solutions for Utilities, Operators, Water Engineering Consultants, Cities, Counties and Governments at a 2 day event. The program focuses on those issues of concern facing all Water professionals involved in Water Treatment, Water Distribution and Watershed Management .


The Conference  also featured Water Pitcher, a special Innovators Session aimed at introducing technologies and innovations to address Water Treatment.

The 2 full days of the event  included presentations, breakout sessions, round table discussions, panels, tours and a variety of exhibits.With first rate speakers, cutting edge science & technologies, the U.S. Smart Water Conference 2018 marked an event for Utilities, Operators, Consultants, Regulators and Government presented by the leaders and innovators in their fields.
