The first WIOA South Australian Conference & Expo received good support from operators in South Australia and suppliers to the industry with nearly 200 individuals meeting in Murray Bridge.
One of the highlights of the event was the awarding of the Best Presentation Award that provides an all expenses opportunity to present the paper again at the 2019 WIOA Queensland or NSW conference. Sponsored by Hydramet the Award was won by Melaine Slimming from South Australia for her presentation on financial savings and efficiencies made at the Port Pirie wastewater treatment facility.
All of the presentations were of a very high standard across the 2 day event as they shared their stories with attendees.
SA Water also took home the Ixom Best Tasting Tap Water in South Australia for the sample from the Woolpunda WTP that sources its water from the mighty Murray River.
