2023 Technical Program
Schedule at a Glance
Workshops - Sunday, September 10
PCW01—Water Distribution Model Calibration (Full Day, includes lunch)
Hydraulic models are a valuable tool for engineers and operators. However, they are only as useful to the extent they are accurately calibrated.

This workshop will feature practical advice from experienced modelers to help make the calibration step in modeling go smoothly.
PCW02—Demystifying Digital Twins - Utility Perspectives (Full Day, includes lunch)
This workshop is intended to offer a blend of industry experience and perspectives on digital twins with hands-on sessions to define digital twins and develop a needs assessment for your utility. Workshop presenters will primarily be utility representatives.

Facility Tour - Sunday, September 10
Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center | 2:00-4:00 pm
Learn about the innovative design, technology and operation of Philadelphia's Fairmount Water Works, the site of the nation's first successful municipal water supply system. Discover how the supply of clean, fresh water contributed to the growth of our young city in the 1800's, how land use over the decades contributed to changes in water quality and how the Philadelphia Water Department manages stormwater runoff which is considered the biggest contributor to water pollution in Philadelphia today. Topics will include discussion of Philadelphia Water's Green City, Clean Water initiative, a 25-year plan using green infrastructure to reduce the volume of stormwater entering combined sewers and the Freshwater Mussel Hatchery, a research and demonstration lab created to raise awareness about mussels and discover best practices for propagating new mussels with the ultimate goal of restoring populations to increase water quality in the Delaware River watershed.
