Over 650 individuals attended the 8th Annual NSW Water Industry Operations Conference and Exhibition held by the Water Industry Operators Association’s (WIOA).  This important water industry event was held on 2 & 3 April 2014 at the PCYC in Orange. Delegates were officially welcome by the Mayor of Orange, Councillor John Davis, and the conference keynote address was delivered by Mr Stewart Kreltszheim from the Country Fire Authority in Victoria who shared some of his experiences and issues in leadership from Kokoda to Kilmore. Stewart’s presentation had even the most hardened water operators almost in tears.

The event concluded with the official awards ceremony, which saw Todd Pattison from Wyong Shire Council win the prestigious industry award that is sponsored by the NSW Water Directorate, the 2014 NSW Operator of the Year.

A comprehensive exhibition with over 100 exhibition sites saw companies exhibit the latest in equipment, services and process technologies available to the water, wastewater and liquid conveyancing industries. The winner of the Ron Bergmeier Award for best exhibition site was SFI Australia Valvemax.
