The annual event is recognized as the place in New England to convene the brightest minds and the most innovative water quality solutions.
This prestigious conference, which consistently attracts over 2000 engineers, consultants, scientists, operators and students features a variety of technical sessions and over 200 exhibitor displays. The conference provides an opportunity for professional exchange of information and state-of-the-art concepts in wastewater treatment and other water environment issues.
The students learned about pumps, valves and other wastewater industry equipment in the exhibit hall and attended various technical presentations on current water quality topics. They also began expanding their professional network, meeting water quality professionals from around the region.
