Wastewater forum 2017

 We hosted a wastewater forum in April 2017, featuring guest speakers from the USA, Australia and New Zealand - all experts in wastewater treatment. It was an opportunity to learn about current trends and best practices in wastewater treatment, and to start thinking about the best options for Palmerston North as the city looks to the future. Attendees included Councillors and decision makers from local and regional Councils, technical staff from local Councils, community group and iwi representatives as well as members of the public.
