Deadline to Submit Abstracts for 8th Biennial Emerging Water Technology Symposium Extended to Nov. 15

Ontario, Calif. — The deadline to submit an abstract for the eighth biennial Emerging Water Technology Symposium (EWTS) has been extended to Nov. 15.

Scheduled for May 14-15, 2024, at the Scottsdale Plaza and Villas in Scottsdale, Arizona, the EWTS will be co-convened by the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE), the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®), and Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI), in cooperation with the World Plumbing Council (WPC).

A Call for Abstracts for this highly respected event is available for download HERE.

The three associations that are co-convening the event have worked together closely over the past few years to grow the symposium and make it a can’t-miss event for those who work or are interested in the fields of safe plumbing, water distribution, and water efficiency. The theme for the 2024 event will be “The Nexus Between Safety and Sustainability” and will focus on avoiding the unintended consequences of striving for both. The co-conveners stress that the EWTS is still an international event and welcome abstracts and participation from across the globe.

“The EWTS Technical Committee is working diligently on putting together the program for the 2024 event in Scottsdale,” said Tony Marcello, senior vice president of Training and Credential Services for The IAPMO Group. ”In an effort to provide the best possible program, the committee wants to provide one final opportunity for interested parties to submit an abstract for consideration, especially abstracts that match the EWTS theme. I am also excited to tease that we will be announcing the keynote speakers very shortly, with keynote presentations that discuss issues related to both water safety and sustainability.”
