The 2nd biennial North American Water Loss Conference (NAWL 2017) will be held December 3-5 in San Diego this year, marking another significant step forward in the water loss industry in North America. NAWL 2017 will be hosted by the California-Nevada Section AWWA, in partnership with the Alliance for Water Efficiency, AWWA, and the U.S. EPA. The event is expected to draw over 1,000 attendees. The inaugural NAWL, held in Atlanta in 2015, drew over 500 attendees from 37 U.S. states, three Canadian provinces, and 15 countries around the world. The 2017 NAWL is expected to double that attendance.
The conference will be held at a Paradise Point Resort, a destination hotel on Mission Bay in the heart of San Diego. The conference schedule includes Sunday social activities to welcome attendees, followed by two days of densely packed industry leading speakers and sessions on developing water loss policies, water auditing and validation, economic target setting, reducing apparent losses, controlling leakage, optimizing network pressure, and tracking performance. Over 100 speakers will present on the latest North American water loss practices including utility, consultant, and regulatory perspectives. The program will also include innovative Learning Modules designed for those seeking more of a classroom learning environment. The conference will also feature an Exhibit Hall with 55 leading technology and service providers for water loss management.
Keynote speakers will include Peter Grevatt, Director of U.S. EPA Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, and Felicia Marcus, Chair of the California State Water Resources Board.
