Industry-leading water experts from CH2M will share the latest innovations and technical knowledge on a variety of total water solutions, covering drinking water, reuse, wastewater and stormwater, as they participate in more than 10 presentations, panels, sessions and posters during the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE). The conference will be held June 11-14, 2017, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Demand for total water solutions, those that take the full water cycle into consideration, continues to percolate, as the world recognizes the challenges around our limited water resources and the growing need to improve our aging water infrastructure. By evolving cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions for our clients around the world that focus on total water solutions, our experts are helping water leaders think systemically and holistically to identify and address water challenges and to help see the benefits of water reuse. A recipient of the Stockholm Industry Water Award for delivering water conservation, treatment, reuse and enrichment in several countries, CH2M is regarded as a proven source of thought leadership in the water market.

One of the biggest water events of the year, AWWA ACE will bring together experts from around the world to exchange ideas about water. Our experts are looking forward to discussing solutions to protect and manage the world’s most important resource. The conference is sure to yield many positive conversations on the affordability of water infrastructure, how to develop robust asset management programs, ways to address water loss in distribution systems and so much more.
