    Learn how you can leverage data management tools to help create a lean
    operations culture.
    Presented by Chuck Scholpp, director, Integrated Information Management,

  *Energy Auditing, Benchmarking, and Modeling at WWTPs
    A typical wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) can lower its energy cost
    between 15% and 30% by simply conducting and applying recommendations from
    an energy audit. This presentation showed how to benchmark and model your
    WWTP to determine if it has good energy savings potential.
    Presented by Justin Rundle, energy engineer, Honeywell
  *Engaging the Consumer in Real-time Conservation
    Addressing the global water crisis requires a fundamental change in the
    way we manage our water. The water utility of the 21st century must engage
    the consumer in active conservation by increasing the availability of
    information and by providing direct financial incentives for conservation.
    Presented by Trevor Hill, president & CEO, Global Water
  *Treatment Systems for Onsite Residential and Commercial Water Reuse

    developed, and discovered how it differentiates between residential and
    commercial water reuse. In addition, the presentation described a Membrane
    Biological Reactor (MBR) that meets all requirements of the new standard.
