We are calling the water sector’s thought-leaders and experts to share their knowledge at the WEAT North Texas Section 2023-24 Programs and February Seminar Abstracts. 

The February Seminar serves as a showcase for introducing and discussing challenges for utilities and new practices for water resource recovery facilities.  The target audience includes utilities, consultants, suppliers, and practitioners energized in leading the discussion and implementation of technical and operations development in the water sector.

Growth Planning and Budgeting Potential Topics:
• How are utilities adjusting to the significant growth in Texas? What is known and not known?
• Stormwater planning and peaking factor changes
• Planning and budgeting for small utilities
• Strategic planning to address differences across the different size facilities within a utility
• Planning for nutrients and regulatory updates (TCEQ)
• How do we hold it together until we are able to execute the growth plans?
• How much is too much, when do we shift from rehab to planning and where is the balance?  
• What businesses are moving to north Texas that would affect the collection system and how are utilities planning?

Innovations Potential Topics:
• Technology highlights
• Workforce engagement and recruitment
• Cross training of staff
• Creating new financial options
• Regulatory updates (TCEQ)
• State adjustments to recent weather events
• Cyber security
