Water Quality Technology Conference

When: November 12, 2017 - November 16, 2017
Where: Oregon Convention Center | Portland, Oregon

From climate change and rising sea levels to rapid urbanization and pressure on natural resources, our world is a more complex place. Innovative, big-picture thinking and integrated solutions protect our most valuable assets, which is why Arcadis thought leaders are participating in the American Water Works Association’s Water Quality Technology Conference® & Exposition (WQTC) — the premier conference for water quality professionals from around the world. This year, Arcadis is making seven contributions to the technical program that explore solutions to water scarcity and advancements in water treatment. Connect with us at our sessions.
