The annual Alliance of Indiana Rural Water will be hosting its fall conference at Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza Wednesday, Aug. 21 and Thursday, Aug. 22. The conference will bring together rural water and wastewater operators for an opportunity to complete continued education units.

During the conference, attendees will be able to learn from a variety of training sessions. Sessions include industrial impact on municipal processes, water storage tank mixing system alternatives, preparing for a power outage, algae control in wastewater treatment lagoons and automatic flushing and leak detection.

In addition to the training opportunities, convention organizers want to provide attendees the opportunity to connect with other industry professionals.

"We hope our members come away from the conference with a good network and having had the chance to share ideas and help one another with potential problems," said Laura Vidal, marketing and public relations director for Alliance of Indiana Rural Water.

Throughout the conference, attendees will be given breaks in the exhibit hall where numerous vendors and water and wastewater engineers will be available to discuss products and information associated with water and wastewater operators.

The Alliance of Indiana Rural Water is a non-profit membership association of over 775 water and wastewater systems and related professionals. The organization is an affiliate of the National Rural Water Association.
