North American Water Loss Conference & Exposition to feature distinguished speakers; early registration prices available through December 3

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) today announced a prominent group of keynote speakers for the North American Water Loss Conference and Exposition from Dec. 7-9, in Austin, Texas.

Early registration for AWWA members costs $425, while it is $525 for non-members. Students who are AWWA members can attend the conference for $35, while non-member students can attend for $50. Early registration prices are available through Dec. 3

Kathleen Jackson, P.E., director of Texas Water Development Board, will kick off the conference with a keynote about the “Sustainable Water Supply for Texas” as part of the Opening General Session on Dec. 8. Jackson’s background involves agricultural, environmental, industrial and wholesale-supply interests in the Texas water sector.

Mary Ann Dickinson, co-founder and former chief executive officer of the Alliance for Water Efficiency, a non-profit dedicated to promoting the efficient and sustainable use of water in the United States and Canada, has more than 40 years of experience in water resources and water efficiency. At the Luncheon Keynote on Dec. 8, Dickinson will be joined by the co-founders of Rogue Water – Stephanie Corso and Arianne Shipley – to discuss climate change impacts and how to communicate about water loss in the sector.

The conference will also feature a unique session entitled, “Artificial intelligence for real water loss control” on Dec. 9 at 8:30 a.m. The session will examine whether the definition of “artificial intelligence” can include the capabilities of highly skilled animals to help optimize water loss assessment and management. The Luncheon Keynote on Dec. 9 will feature Vessel and Gauge – the Leak Detection Dogs from Central Arkansas Water and Rye Engineering, respectively – in action showing off their tricks.
