Book now for NSW’s premier water conference

14 Jun 2019
Registrations have opened for the Local Government NSW Water Management Conference 2019 in Albury on 2 – 4 September.

With much of NSW currently in the grip of severe drought, many councils are facing significant and unprecedented challenges in providing their communities with an ongoing supply of safe water.

This year’s Conference focusses on these challenges from a variety of perspectives, including government policy, innovation, collaboration and community.

On day one hear from the Minister for Water (invited) about the NSW Government’s urban water priorities and agenda, and its priorities for water security.

The Bureau of Meteorology will unveil its much-anticipated medium-term forecasts, while the Regional Town Water Supply Coordinator will present thoughts on some of the short-term fixes and long-term solutions to water security.

The Office of Emergency Management will discuss the criticality of water and sewer infrastructure in the context of drought and how the Department of Industry – Water is working with water utilities on a regional basis to improve water security and planning.

On day two, the focus shifts to issues of governance and oversight. Through a series of case studies, delegates will be informed of the responsibilities of elected representatives and the Department of Industry will talk about State Government regulatory oversight. A panel of councillors will discuss their experiences in water policy, oversight and management.

The conference will be held at Albury Entertainment Centre, 525 Swift St. Visit the LGNSW website to register for the conference, book your accommodation and check for latest updates.
