Welcome to the International Water Association conference on Small Water and Wastewater Systems 2019 to be held in Perth, Western Australia on 1-5 December at Murdoch University.
What an exciting time to be sharing ideas, presenting the latest research findings and discussing new possibilities in science and technology with local and global policy directors, engineers and managers.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our many great colleagues on the Executive Committee, National Organising Committee, International Advisory Committee, Program Committee and invited speakers.
When you come to Perth in December 2019 you will be able to see a city with a number of examples of decentralised systems. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any further information.
Water is essential for all life forms It is a fundamental resource necessary for socio-economic development and for ecological sustainability.
Good quality water is becoming scarce due to population growth and associated residential and industrial development and pollution, particularly in towns and cities. It is timely that the sustainable management of water resources is widely discussed, noting that water can be recycled for an unlimited number of times after adequate treatment.
The conference will have topics regarding small systems (decentralised systems) which serves less than 100,000 population equivalent.
The conference will discuss and explore new and innovative methods of treatment, better understanding and assessment of resources and their supporting ecosystems, proper management for conservation and approaches to achieve the dual aim of economic development and ecological sustainability.
The focus is on the necessary infrastructure to provide good quality water, in sufficient quantity, in the most sustainable manner.
