Victorian Water Futures Forum

Victorian Water Futures Forum

24 March 2015, Melbourne

Following the success of our Metropolitan Water Forum last September, AWA has planned a Victorian Water Future Forum.  We will explore the following issues: 

  • Where is the water industry headed in Victoria?
  • Breaking the political cycle, creating a secure long term future for the water, sewerage and stormwater management
  • Creating institutional arrangements to enable a robust and innovative future.

AWA will formulate a position paper from this forum and present it to the current Government on behalf of its members.  Read the  flyer   or   REGISTER

IAL 2015 Regional Conference

Irrigation Australia Limited 2015 Regional Conference

26-28 May 2015, Western Sydney

The peri-urban environment describes the overlapping zone between the traditional rural, agricultural or horticultural use of land, water and other finite resources, the encroaching urban sprawl bringing competition and alternative demands for those limited resources, new regulations and operating conditions and tensions between potential alternative resource uses. As Australia’s urban population grows and new lands are opened up for residential housing around our cities and towns, the impacts on traditional uses of irrigation increases.

While many people think of the peri-urban environment as solely encompassing the fringes of our growing capital cities, it is much broader than that. As Australia becomes a more urbanised society, our capital cities, larger non-capital cities, major regional centres, and even rural and coastal towns, are all experiencing the difficulties of balancing competing needs and expectations from a wide variety of stakeholder groups. Even within our major cities, the peri-urban environment describes both the expanding fringe of the city, and pockets where agricultural or horticultural activities persist alongside major residential areas, such as local market gardens or greenhouses.

Water Innovation Forum 2015

Water Innovation Forum 2015

18-19 March 2015, Sydney

Australia has forever faced the challenge of sustainably managing its limited water resources, continually balancing the need to provide safe, secure and affordable water to both households and industry in variable climatic conditions. 

It is through these challenges that the Australian water, construction, food and beverage, and agricultural industries, have become world leaders in the development of innovative solutions for water and wastewater management to make practices more efficient and effective.

CSIRO: What technology will the Water Industry be buying tomorrow?

CSIRO: What technology will the Water Industry be buying tomorrow?


Speaker: Dr Tim Muster - Senior Research Scientist, CSIRO Land & Water  

Since the inception of the water industry, technology has been trialled and implemented to optimise efficiency, quality and security. The acceptance and usage of technology goes through a journey of rigours testing, research and proving before wide scale implementation is generally accepted. The focus of this talk is to provide insight on how a research organisation decides if a topic is worthy of research, and subsequently how it advances and brings technology to the market place.



12-14 May 2015, Adelaide


Australia has many unique advantages including our world-class resources, proximity to Asia, a temperate climate and the distinct opportunity of growth industries including agribusiness, mining, and tourism. However, for all these industries to prosper they require one vital element – water.

Safe water. Secure water. Sustainable water. Access to water.
