Over the last two years, qldwater has organised a suite of webinars through the Essentials Webinar Series for our members on topics of relevance to the urban water sector. While the initial driver for the webinars was to replace in a small way the industry-wide interaction that was not possible during 2020, we would like the program to continue in a more targeted way… with future webinars to be on topics that we know will be of broad interest to our members.
As reminder, here are the links to the top four most watched webinars of the last year or so:
Ngukurr Asbestos Cement Main Project, NT by Teng Yik, NT Power and Water Corporation
Why is it important for water businesses to understand asset criticality? by Moira Zeilinga, Clear Idea
THM Management in Drinking Water Networks
A industry workshop and panel session chaired by David Sheehan from Coliban Water in Victoria
A seven-year major sewer upgrade project by Nadine Story and Noel Ralph from Urban Utilities
Innovation in asset management by Adjunct Professor Joseph Mathew from the Asset Institute, Australia
Special Webinar on Progress with COVID Sewage Surveillance by Jochen Mueller, University of Queensland and Dan Deere from Water Futures

WSAA has launched a refreshed version of the Water360 website, which provides a useful reference for research and information related to the urban water industry. The website provides links to current and past WSAA research projects, newsletters and latest news and updates from WSAA.

qldwater's NRL and AFL tipping competition is now open for all employees of qldwater members and qldwater Affiliate Members. Keen to see some new competitors - last season proved to be a bit of a challenge for everyone but we are in a new normal and that includes footy every week with no disruptions.*
*We will not be held to this statement.
There will be a weekly prize for one person who selects the most winners in either NRL or AFL.
Even average tippers get lucky once during the competition and you can tell your colleagues you are a prize-winner even if (like Rob Fearon) you know nothing about Football.
