Collaboration between water business and utilities, in which knowledge, information, and lessons learned are shared between geographic entities, can not only help industry stakeholders meet the growing water demand, but also prove to be of instrumental support in times of crisis, said Nathan Epp, senior engineer - Energy and Commercial Projects at Australia-based Goulburn Valley Water, and also a speaker at the upcoming IWS.
