The OAWU Annual Management & Technical Conference is designed to help the rural water and wastewater professional stay on top of important issues within the industry. The conference sessions are where attendees learn about the most recent developments in the industry. These professionals from all over the state and country will be in Sunriver to learn as much as they can about the latest techniques and new technology and ever changing regulations.
Make certain you are there, too.
You can be sure the exhibit hall is on everyone’s agenda during the conference. This is where attendees meet with manufacturers, consultants and service providers to review the newest products and services in the industry. This is your chance to visit with and personally meet the operators, managers and/or decision makers from most smaller utility systems in Oregon. Don’t be left out.
