Field Trips

               Tuesday 3rd December,

         1 – 6pm  (free)

The conference will offer all delegates a field visit to choose from 3 different streams centered on Small Water Technologies, Groundwater Management and Stormwater Management. Each stream will include a visit to two or more related sites and will be guided by experts at each facility. This will give the participants a unique opportunity to experience technological practices carried out in Western Australia and network with colleagues throughout the afternoon.


It is likely that all three streams below will run but changes may be necessary. Keep an eye on the notice board by the conference registration desk for details and final signup. Further details will be posted in the conference program, however, it would be helpful if you could tick your preference in the appropriate box when you register
