Eco Detection still ahead of the game at OzWater’24

The Eco Detection team attended its fourth Australian Water Association Annual Conference from 30 April – 2 May. OzWater is the largest water conference in the southern hemisphere and once again we found Eco Detection continues to run ahead of its competitors as the only real-time, water quality monitoring platform of its kind; an innovative self-calibrated, multiparameter ‘lab in the field’.

From emerging contaminants, water access solutions, the role of cyber and new asset tools; Day 1 explored opportunities our sector must act on. Delegates heard from across our water community about creative change management, the potential of IOT and the challenge of optimising operations for long term sustainability. 

The afternoon featured OzWater’s first suite of Workshops and Panels, presenting delegates with the opportunity to hear from experts, collaborate with peers and engage in bigger picture thinking. 

How can our sector prioritise people, encourage creativity and understand First Nations Science whilst still maintaining water services into the future? Day 2 featured speakers sharing insights into their efforts to accelerate action across the sector. 

Day 3 was commenced with an address from the Hon Tanya Plibersek MP Minister for the Environment and Water and was packed with dynamic and passionate presentations, exploring topics from water efficiency and conservation to the potential of machine learning. 

We heard about stormwater’s role in circular economy and novel technology available for flood management, as well as how the sector can, and must, leverage digital potential to make lasting change.

Thank you to the delegates who stopped by our stand; we’ll continue the conversation on how we can help you ensure a sustainable water future.
