Florida Water Resources Conference

· June 1, 2023 — June 3, 2023

The Florida Water Resources Conference (FWRC) is a forum for presentations and discussions of cutting edge technology development as well as practical case studies of applications of technology in water and wastewater utilities. FWRC brings together a broad range of professionals: engineers, scientists, operators, technicians and management, of all water utilities and features one of the largest regional technical exhibitors in the nation with the participation of over 350 manufacturers and services providers. 

The 2023 Florida Water Resources Conference is right around the corner! Carollo is proud to sponsor this conference, share research, and discuss case studies on topics like risk-based prioritization of collection system infiltration and inflow reduction, how we helped find funding opportunities for Sarasota County’s Bee Ridge WRF, pellet softening enhancements, and more! This conference will also include a Young Professional workshop with a panel of YPs discussing their experiences in a variety of fields. And be sure to stop by our booth (405 and 407) to see the latest technology from our Water Applied Research Center (Water ARC®)!
