Season's Greetings from WaterRA

December 14, 2020

On behalf of the Water Research Australia Board and staff I would like to wish you and your families a safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year holiday season.

We thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to working with you in 2021 to co-create a new and better ‘normal’.

Next year is shaping up to be an exciting one! WaterRA’s ColoSSoS Project – Collaboration on Sewage Surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 – will capture the knowledge and experiences from the research that’s been undertaken this year in a Good Practice Guide. To be released in early 2021, it will provide an overview and recommendations around sampling protocols; analysis method evaluations and sensitivity improvements for low case numbers; data integration case control study approach; and, communications materials.

Into the New Year there will also be many other opportunities for members to co-fund and co-deliver water solutions through high-impact collaborative research, which you can view here. Please also keep an eye on your inbox next month for the release of our annual events calendar.

The WaterRA Team will be taking a well-earned break over the holidays and the office will be closed from 12pm 24th December and will re-open on 4th January 2021.

I hope that you too will be able to take some time-out to rest and recuperate after this very challenging year.

Best wishes,

Karen Rouse

Chief Executive Officer
