Technical Sessions

One Water: All for One and One For Water!

This year’s event theme is One Water, a holistic, collaborative approach to water management to ensure the sustainability and long-term resilience of our water resources. The One Water movement promotes transformative solutions to solve the most pressing challenges impacting the water environment. Many elements of this year’s program will address key themes related to One Water.

This premier water quality event and exhibit features 37 technical sessions, a student poster session that showcases the work of water quality undergraduates and graduates, an Innovation Pavilion and two floors of exhibitors featuring the industry’s latest products.

The conference commences on Monday with six morning and seven afternoon technical sessions on key industry issues. The Opening Session at 11:00 AM will convene attendees to hear from NEWEA and WEF leadership and our 2024 Keynote Speaker, Dr. Jonathan Gruber.

Tuesday offers another full day of exciting events. We celebrate and recognize operators by offering morning and afternoon Plant Operations technical sessions, as well as the lunchtime Operator’s Reception. A Plenary Session will be held from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, featuring a 45-minute panel discussion on existing and emerging challenges impacting our water resources followed by 45 minutes of pitches from innovators developing solutions to address these issues.

Even more to celebrate—our lunch-time awards ceremony on Wednesday recognizing outstanding efforts in our industry and the passing of the gavel to the 2024 NEWEA President, Scott Goodinson of Narragansett, RI.

We hope you take advantage of all the 2024 Annual Conference has to offer and use this occasion to connect with your water industry colleagues.
