Date:4/15/2010

As green technology progresses at an unprecedented rate and the demand for efficient, effective equipment and supplies continues, the importance of the Florida Water Resources Conference (FWRC) is paramount. This 3-day utility conference, packed with technical sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities, is the largest of it’s kind in the Southeast. Planned for May 16 –19, 2010 at the Renaissance Resort at Seaworld, Orlando, over 250 exhibitors and 2,400 attendees are expected.

(PRWEB) April 15, 2010 -- As green technology progresses at an unprecedented rate and the demand for efficient, effective equipment and supplies continues, the importance of the Florida Water Resources Conference (FWRC) is paramount. This 3-day utility conference, packed with technical sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities, is the largest of it’s kind in the Southeast. Planned for May 16 –19, 2010 at the Renaissance Resort at Seaworld, Orlando, over 250 exhibitors and 2,400 attendees are expected.

A joint conference of the Florida Section American Water Works Association, the Florida Water Environment Association, and the Florida Water and Pollution Control Operators Association, the FWRC is celebrating it’s 85th gathering.

A comprehensive, quality technical program including daily workshops and sessions, will focus on industry and environmental hot topics such as numeric nutrient criteria, which is being closely monitored by all. In January 2009 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) decided that Florida – and only Florida – needed statewide numeric nutrient water quality standards.

Florida utilities, through the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) Utility Council, believe the existing narrative nutrient criteria have served the State well. The FWEA Utility Council is supportive of science-based criteria that protect waters of the state, and was actively participating in an ongoing program by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to evaluate water body specific nutrient criteria. EPA's actions, unfortunately, have derailed this scientific approach. Therefore, they are opposing EPA's actions as being contrary to law and unscientific. The FWEA Utility Council believes that EPAs actions will have numerous unintended consequences with little or no environmental benefit.

The Student Design Competition will take place on Sunday, May 16 where brilliant teams from Florida Universities present their recommendations and fresh solutions to real life environmental issues and wastewater projects. This year we will have two (2) teams each from University of Central Florida, University of Florida, Florida Atlantic University, University of Miami, University of South Florida. This is a great opportunity to see the young guns demonstrate their very capable abilities. University of Florida, last year’s winners, topic was “Green Infrastructure and LID Design for Florida Constructed Environs, Subject to Rainfall Runoff Loadings”. This team won the Water Environment Federation National Competition held last October.

This year the Operations Challenge, scheduled for Monday, May 17, brings teams of treatment plant operators and laboratory technicians from around the state, to compete in timed Collection System, Laboratory, Process Control, Pump Maintenance, and Safety events. The winning team will go to the national Water Environment Federations conference in October to compete against other state winners.

On Tuesday the Top Ops Competition, teams of 3 from utilities around the state, will be judged on operator knowledge of water treatment, troubleshooting, process control, safety, laboratory procedures and regulations in a College Bowl quiz-show format. They to will compete against other states at the national American Water Works Association Annual ACE event in June.
