They Wanted You to Go to Rehab and ... We Said Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

When it comes to infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement, collection system professionals have a wide range of options and solutions to consider. Solutions range from the traditional methods to the implantation of new technologies and construction techniques. That's why we must be sure to think through each solution carefully to evaluate the best option available… rehabilitation or replacement…before jumping to implementation. Experts from across the country will be getting together in Raleigh, N.C. June 12-15 for Collection Systems 2011 – we invite you to join us and learn about evaluation methodologies, lessons learned and an opportunity to network.

There is much to learn about the technical, regulatory, funding, and climate change challenges to improving our wastewater collection systems.  With limited financial resources available, communities are looking for creative sustainable solutions, utilizing the latest information and technology available to potentially reduce their cost for Collection System Improvements. Our conference committee members live and breathe collection systems (it's what we do every day) and we partnered with the North Carolina WEA to build program value including innovative best management practices, green plant tours, state-of-the-art technologies, new EPA research, and more.

If all of this is not enough to wet your appetite, then by all means, we are sure you will enjoy the opportunity to network with the wonderful community of collections professionals who are passionate about their clean water commitment!  You can meet them at some new events including a Water for People golf outing on Sunday and a Social Event on Sunday evening as well as the traditional places like the networking reception Monday, at technical sessions, during breaks, and in the exhibit hall throughout the conference. They are more than willing to share their expertise as you weigh questions of rehab versus replacement in planning infrastructure improvements. Please join us in Raleigh.
