IT Forum

Many water and wastewater utilities are exploring how to best use technology, and find themselves looking for guidance and awareness of what their peers have achieved, and where the industry is headed. 

The IT Forum is here to assist utilities by connecting them with their local peers, and providing education and understanding of new technology trends in the water sector.
