17th LET final programme released

The IWA Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies is designed to be the place for sharing the latest insights into how pioneering science, technological innovation and leading practices will shape the major transformation in water management that is underway. Join us in Reno, United States, on 27 March – 2 April 2022.

IWA is pleased to announce that the final programme is now available! LET 2022 will focus on in-depth exploration of the most leading-edge and pioneering developments.

“We have produced a rich programme which includes extremely trending topics, ranging from water reuse, wastewater-based epidemiology and anti-microbial resistance to digital water and sustainable wastewater treatment solutions. We hope that you will find the conference enriching and stimulating, and we very much look forward to seeing these lively discussions turn into actual impact in our industry and beyond” – LET Programme Committee Chairs (Ana Soares, Cranfield University & Jonathan Clement, ADW Solutions)

“As Chair of the organising committee, is my pleasure to invite you to the 17th IWA LET that is taking place in the beautiful Tahoe Meadows region in Nevada, United States. The extreme water challenges that we have faced here in Nevada in the past few years, ranging from prolonged drought to severe flooding show exactly how much is at stake if we don’t find solutions to manage water responsibly. The US water industry market offers many opportunities for improvement and innovations. Join us in Reno!”
– Krishna Pagilla, University of Nevada, Reno, Chair of the Organising Committee
