Urbanisation is creating great pressure on water and irrigation. Councils, water authorities and other affiliated organisations are increasingly realising that water supply is being stretched to its limits. Droughts followed by water restrictions have raised awareness of this issue making urban irrigation a ‘hot topic’, however there is widespread recognition that long term strategies need to be developed and the ‘green sector’ has been targeted as a means to deliver water and irrigation savings.
Those associated with the irrigation of public spaces, sport and entertainment venues but also farms or nurseries will need to adopt more efficient irrigation practices to maximise water usage while its acquisition cost increases.
The Irrigation Australia International Conference and Exhibition presents a unique opportunity for water authorities, city councils, parks, sporting venues, golf course operators and other relevant organisations to discuss, debate, listen to strategies and exchange ideas for the common goal for efficient water use within urban areas.
Speaker line up includes: John Elliott, Australian Businessman and Former President of Liberal Party, Graham Hawke, Division Head, Environment and Research Division, Bureau Of Meteorology, and Phillip Glyde, Chief Executive, Murray-Darling Basin Authority, among others.
