Anyone who's thirsty for information on the water business can get their fill at the 2014 Water Summit, which the Indiana Chapter of the National Association of Water Companies will host Thursday at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Indianapolis.
Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann, State Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, and Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission chairman Jim Atterholt, and other will speak about the latest challenges and solutions in water management. They will discuss how utilities can deal with ageing infrastructure across the state, such as to prevent water main breaks.
"Many of Indiana's drinking water distribution systems have pipes that date back to the late 1800s and many have reached or are close to reaching the end of their useful life," said Alan DeBoy, President of Indiana American Water and Indiana Chapter NAWC Chair.
Registration costs $50. For more information, visit NAWC.org.
