Global Center Program

At the Global Center you can take a break, hook up to the free wi-fi and network with your fellow water community colleagues. 

Operator Ingenuity.jpgOn Wednesday, October 20th at 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., we celebrate our operators, who are at the front lines in the protection of public health, at the Operator Ingenuity Awards. Water and wastewater operators routinely devise outside-the-box ideas that enhance how their facilities protect public health and the local environment. These awards recognize, celebrate, and spread the word about home-spun innovations and clever ideas that advance the sector.
