Hypothetical 2: WaterRA Project 1063/12 'Identify and assess the water quality risks from extreme events'

Jul 16, 2014 1:30pm to 5:00pm


If you are involved in: incident/emergency management; water treatment plant operations; senior operations management; health regulation; customer-relations management (comms perspective of the retailer); reservoir/dam operations; asset management we need your input! The second of two "Hypotheticals" will be held on 16th July at the Melbourne Conference and Training Centre.

This WaterRA project (1063/12) has been initiated to improve the management of water quality impacts from extreme weather events.

The project is being led by Dr Stuart Khan (UNSW) and builds on previous research (in which Stuart participated), funded by the US Water Research Foundation. The Water Research Foundation has kindly agreed to make the report and case studies from that previous work available to WaterRA members on our Website.

An important feature of the WaterRA project are two hypothetical event scenarios. The key objective of these ‘hypotheticals’ is to provide practical insights and lessons to facilitate planning for extreme weather events. Participants will be presented with information that will challenge their conventional experiences regarding operational procedures to identify limitations in current procedures, assumptions, and readily available information. The process will contribute to the identification of a list of specific ‘key learnings’ for each event.

The second hypothetical will be held during the WaterRA Research Symposium at the Melbourne Conference and Training Centre, 1/477 Collins St,Melbourne VIC 3000.

To register for this event please use the Book Event button on this page . There is no cost to attend the hypothetical.

There is a flier here with more information about the hypotheticals.
