Saskatchewan Water Action Network (SWAN) in association with University of Saskatchewan is pleased to invite you to a SWAN Project Kick-Off & Networking Event
February 10, 2016
Wastewater is a valuable untapped resource. Water is more valuable than oil. You can live without food for 30 days; you can only live without water for 3 days. The world continues to find and roll out solutions that have tremendous advantages over legacy based solutions, but these solutions are slow to be adopted and slow to be leveraged or collaborated around in order to advance them to the next level.
This event will enable growth and advancement in the areas of environmental, social and economic impact related to water management and water treatment infrastructure. As a follow up to the previous SWAN event, the theme continues to be “Water Recovery & Reuse”.
