2017 BCWWA SCADA & IT Conference


As the result of the success of our previous SCADA & IT workshop held at the Richmond Radisson Hotel Conference Centre in November 2015, we are responding to an overwhelming request to hold our next event themed “SCADA Systems, What`s Next?” at the same venue!

Since many municipalities already own and operate a SCADA system, how has it been leveraged?  What makes SCADA tick?  What are the basic components of a SCADA system? Does management realize the potential in this enabling technology infrastructure?  What are other Municipalities (by size) doing with their SCADA system?  Are you a small community interested in SCADA? Is your SCADA system as secure as you think?  Are there ways to improve on your SCADA system through the application of new SCADA technologies…. YOU BET!

Additionally, there will be a Manufacturers, Suppliers and Consultants display area complete with food and refreshments.  DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!

Technology & Water Management

Water is a fundamental building block of life on this planet. It has been and will continue to be a highly charged topic replete with complexity and a persistent need for adaptation and responsible stewardship. Water management has its own challenges;  operationally, technically, and politically. We will examine how current and upcoming technologies including edge computing, the Internet of Things and Big Data impact water management today and into the future.
