Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to the first 2016 update from the Clearwater team.

We started off the year on a high note with our booked out 'Water Drinks' event. For those who missed out on the drinks, food and fun, don't worry, there'll be other opportunities: 2016 will see us partnering with Stormwater Victoria to bring you a series of 'Water Drinks'. A great opportunity to meet other water practitioners and to share ideas, experience and perspectives on key issues in a casual setting. You can register now for our next 'Water Drinks' event on March 22.

We are also taking registrations for an exciting new tour developed in partnership with the City of Knox (March 3). You will see innovative stormwater solutions - delivering for flood mitigation (quantity), waterway protection (quality) and stormwater use at the local level (conservation). Get in quick as numbers are limited!

And don't forget to check out our resources:

  • More IWM cartoons - this series focuses on contamination of waterways. A fantastic educational tool to get IWM concepts and ideas across! We encourage you to download the cartoons and use them as much as you can.
  • The development and trial of a novel cross-connection detection device (Smart Water Fund project) - the final report will be available during the month of February. This electrical conductivity sensor is currently being integrated into supply networks to allow early detection of potential cross connections between potable and recycled water sources.
