About the Summit

Driving Efficiency and Resiliency in Water and Wastewater Systems

World Water-Tech North America 2019: Los Angeles is where over 250 US, Canadian and international water utilities, municipalities and industrial end-users meet to find solutions to the challenges of asset optimization, digitization, leakage, energy and reuse.

With an established reputation for fostering innovation, facilitating commercial collaborations and showcasing disruptive start-ups, the summit is an opportunity to learn from and connect with the leading technology providers, engineering giants and investors from across the region and around the world.
