Australia's International Water
Conference & Exhibition



Ozwater'17 Preliminary Program released

Ozwater is an event like no other, organised by the industry for the industry where the issues that drive the water-sector are discussed and future directions decided.

With a 3-day conference program reviewed and selected by water industry professionals, Ozwater provides you with relevant industry information, professional development and quality networking on a scale like no other water conference.

Ozwater’17 received over 400 submissions each reviewed independently by water industry leaders with 5+ years and then the top scoring submissions were provided to the program committee made up of experienced industry professionals to be developed into the program that you can view here.

All submissions were reviewed by the following criteria:

-Relationship and significance to the themes of the conference
-Status of the project
-Technical content
-Interest and significance to the Ozwater audience
-Quality (spelling, layout, etc.)

With submissions being based on outcomes, not future projects.
