This page lists events relevant to the Queensland Water Industry.
The Queensland Water Directorate (qldwater) will host its first targeted Innovation Forum event at the Alan Border Field, Albion on 27 November 2014.
Presented by our Technical Reference Group, the event aims to celebrate utility-led innovation which is critical in both small and large communities, as well as promote partnerships between those utilities, research organisations and companies with an interest in the sector.
It will be supported by the Water Services Association of Australia, and Australian Water Association. A draft program will be available soon.
Tenth Anniversary Dinner
On Thursday, 28 November we celebrated our tenth anniversary at a dinner with key people who have played a substantial role in the inception and growth of the Directorate. It was a great opportunity to reflect on the past and also to pay tribute to those whom we believe has made a lasting impact in the industry.
Although the urban water industry is blessed with plenty of great men and women who work tirelessly to provide a top quality food grade product to their customers 24/7, we took the opportunity to single out a couple of people who, over the years, have gone above and beyond their normal duties to make a difference. Two special awards were presented to acknowledge Industry Contribution and Industry Leadership.
Congratulations to Alan Kleinschmidt from Toowoomba Regional Council who received the Industry Contribution Award and David Brooker from Mackay Regional Council, winner of the Industry Leadership Award.
Other contribution winners included Dick Went from Gold Coast Water, John Roworth from Longreach Regional Council, Daryl Ross from Logan Water and Jason Devitt from Mackay Regional Council.
