1. Barcaldine Regional Conference – Registrations Close Friday!

Registrations to attend the Barcaldine Conference close this Friday. If you have not yet registered you better hurry. 

The qldwater regional event will be in Barcaldine on 19th and 20th May, hosted by Barcaldine Regional Council. Parts of the program will again be available online, but we hope to get as many people in person as we can.

There is a dinner planned on the evening of the 19th and full day conference on the 20th. There will also be a site tour in the morning of the 20th May.

The event theme will be focused on service delivery in the West and we hope to be able to showcase some of the activities of the Remote Area Planning and Development Board’s Water and Sewerage Alliance which is supported through QWRAP.

The program is available on the event website.

2. Charters Towers Conference 21-22 July – Call for Papers

To finish off our year on a high note with qldwater Regional Conferences, our last one for 2021 will be held in Charters Towers on 21st and 22nd July, hosted by Charters Towers Regional Council.  

The event theme will be focused on the ‘Water Quality Challenges in Northern Queensland’.

Early bird registrations will be complimentary again for qldwater members, with a dinner planned on the evening of the 21st.  

This event will be run in a hybrid format however we hope to get as many people to attend in person. There will be a meeting for NQ alliance participants in the morning of the 21st. 

The call is now open for relevant technical and other presentations to fill 20-25 minutes slots.

Presentations from qldwater members or organisations able to co-present with members will always be prioritised. We aim to make the process as easy as possible: you will need to provide us with a brief outline now and a PowerPoint a couple of days before the event. Please forward your ideas to dcameron@qldwater.com.au.

Thank you to our confirmed sponsors GanDen our Dinner Sponsor and Royce Water Technologies, Aquatec Maxcon and Aqualyng our Gold Sponsors. 

Please contact Naomi (ncarragher@qldwater.com.au) if you are interested in sponsoring this event.

3. Swimlocal and SWIM Training and Workshops

qldwater will be holding some free swimlocal/SWIM training and workshops in the next couple months. If you would like training and cannot attend the below sessions, please let David know.  

  • Longreach/Barcaldine: 17, 18, 19 and 21 May  
  • Brisbane: 21-22 June

We can tailor the swimlocal training/setup work to whatever you need. For example, have training sessions for both ‘systems administrators’, i.e., those people who setup Users, sites, indicators, etc. and sessions for ‘data entry operators’, i.e., those people entering data via tablets and computers.  

You can attend for as little or long as you want/need.  

We will also have time to spend specifically helping you to setup or modify your swimlocal system to get the most out of it, e.g., add alerts, automating SWIM annual reporting, importing lab data directly, SCADA data imports, adding new sites/indictors, etc. and discussing future reporting tools and dashboards.  

Please let me know if you (and/or other staff) are interested so we can work out numbers and meeting rooms.  

Note that there should be minimal to no changes to the SWIM indicators this year.  

If you have any questions about SWIM or swimlocal please contact David Scheltinga (dscheltinga@qldwater.com.au).
