OzWater'19 – we'll be there, and we'll be transforming our world



Ozwater, the biggest annual water industry event in the southern hemisphere, is back in Melbourne from 7 – 9 May and we’ll be participating in a big way.

Focusing on the event theme ‘Transforming our World’, we’ll have a one-of-a-kind display stand showcasing our customer-focused solutions – OneBox®, Advanced BlokAid®, digital metering, Smart Valve Key and Aquarevo. We’ll also be hosting a site tour at Aquarevo and have a team of our employees delivering 12 presentations (outlined below).

Monday 6 May

Our Aquarevo tour will give Ozwater’19 attendees an insight into Melbourne’s most water-savvy community in Lyndhurst. Residents here will have three types of water plumbed straight to their homes (drinking water, rainwater and Class A recycled water) to reduce their reliance on drinking water by up to 70 per cent.
