Welcome Messages

Reimagining our Water Future Kauwipira Yangadlitya Mukapapanthi

A

s National President of the Australian Water Association, I’d like to formally welcome you to Ozwater’21. It has been a long, hard road to get to Adelaide and I need to express my thanks to everyone who has contributed to getting us to the starting blocks! The last time Ozwater was held in Adelaide was in 2015 – and what a different world it was then. Our challenge in 2021 to “Reimagine our Water Future” resonates at this time of huge change and shifting paradigms. I can think of no better event than Ozwater to set the scene for intelligent, robust, and stimulating conversations around how we see the future. The program will challenge our thinking and dare us to look at our responsibilities in delivering sustainable water solutions in our ever-changing landscape. There are huge opportunities for all delegates to embrace new ideas, reconnect with colleagues and establish new networks.

Carmel Krogh OAM President, Australian Water Association

Ozwater is the Association’s premier event, and has evolved over many years to meet the needs of the industry and lead the way in sharing, connecting and inspiring. I am very proud to be President of this great Association at a time when we have been challenged to step up and demonstrate just who we are. Ozwater’21 is unique in its development and formation arising from the effects of COVID. As an organisation, we have sought to provide a platform that allows all participants a valuable experience to help shape our future. I am confident that Ozwater’21 will deliver this. I look forward to meeting and engaging with as many of you as possible over the conference and I encourage you all to maximise the opportunity to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Ozwater.

On behalf of the entire AWA team, a very warm welcome to Ozwater’21.

There is much to celebrate as we come together in one place to ‘Reimagine our Water Future’. Never has there been a time that we have looked more forward to meeting each other, connecting and sharing our knowledge and experiences. We have had a fantastic response, with the water sector turning out in large numbers to participate in what will be our largest Ozwater in Adelaide ever! This is quite an amazing achievement given international travel restrictions have prohibited our international colleagues and partners from attending in person. Thank you for being part of this extraordinary milestone event and making Ozwater’21 great. The Ozwater’21 Committee and AWA team have done a marvellous job on the program and the finer details that will make Ozwater’21 a memorable one. The streams and speakers are diverse and wide ranging covering the most relevant, thought provoking and innovative topics from across the country with some of our international partners streaming in. We also have a curated digital program for those who cannot attend in person, or for Ozwater’21 delegates to ‘add on’ should you wish to see a presentation that you missed or would like to relive your Ozwater’21 experience. As we strive to deliver amazing experiences for our members, partners and colleagues across the country, I hope that you will take as much away as possible over the next three days from the conference streams, the exhibition and all that the social program has to offer. We will also celebrate the achievements of our sector in the AWA National Water Awards presented at the Gala Dinner. There is much to celebrate and recognise and I really do hope that you enjoy Ozwater’21 as much as I will.

How do we Reimagine our Water Future in a world grappling with climate change and gripped by pandemic?

Never has the future appeared so uncertain, and for those of us charged with the responsibility for water, our challenges are immense. The World Bank predicts that 80% of future climate change adaptation responses will be in water related areas, particularly related to reduced water availability and extreme weather events. The challenge is here and now and the future is in our hands. Business as usual is not our business. In a world filled with so much uncertainty, we must reach out and embrace innovation and change. We must challenge our preconceived paradigms and embrace disruption as opportunity.

Hon Karlene Maywald DUniv, GAICD, FTSE Managing Director, Maywald Consultants Pty Ltd South Australian Water Ambassador

Our Ozwater’21 program will challenge your thinking, test your boundaries, and ask you to ask the tough questions. This is the “must attend” event for all of us in the water sector. We are very excited to be able to host this event in Adelaide and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back to our conference in person. The past 12 months have been particularly difficult. We have learnt a lot, and it is incredible that we can be in the position to bring you all back together, to share experiences. I look forward to seeing you in Adelaide.

I

warmly welcome you all to South Australia and the beautiful city of Adelaide for Ozwater’21. The largest water industry event in the southern hemisphere, Ozwater provides an unrivalled opportunity to connect, share insights and ideas across our industry, and hear about the big issues we’re facing today. In a time of extraordinary change and challenge, our sector is demonstrating and role modelling resilience. We must continue leading by innovating, partnering and leveraging our collective strengths. This is how we will deliver the sustainable services and operational improvements that our customers and communities deserve and value now and into the future. The water industry plays a key role in shaping healthy, thriving communities and at Ozwater’21, we will Reimagine our Water Future, by sharing our bold ideas, challenges and successes. Prospering in the driest state on the driest continent, the South Australian water sector has for many years been tackling challenges now emerging elsewhere and we’re looking forward to sharing our stories and solutions, and further plans for a sustainable water future. The program will feature more than 130 technical presentations and 80 pitch presentations across the three days, as well as interactive workshops and panel sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Expect to be inspired and leave the conference with new knowledge and a rekindled motivation. Contribute and learn from each other’s deep experience, skills and expertise, plus hear from engaging keynote speakers, from inside and outside the water sector, each morning.

David Ryan Chief Executive, SA Water

I’m really looking forward to being part of this year’s Ozwater, and I encourage you all to make the most of it too.

Simon Griffiths

Co-founder & CEO, Who Gives a Crap The Business of Making a Difference Simon is an engineer and economist turned social entrepreneur. In 2007, after turning down his dream job offer as a corporate high-flyer, he moved from Australia to South Africa to immerse himself in his true passion: development aid. There he discovered that the biggest problem faced by NGOs and social entrepreneurs is a lack of funding. Driven by a passion to use business to give back, in 2010, Simon had the idea to start a toilet paper company that builds toilets in the developing world. In 2012, he launched Who Gives A Crap with a crowdfunding campaign, agreeing to sit on a toilet on a live webfeed until he had pre-sold the first $50,000 of toilet rolls. The multi-award winning launch attracted global media attention and generated more than 2 million social media impressions. Since launching, Who Gives A Crap has grown at 2-3x year-on-year, primarily relying on word-of-mouth to fuel its growth. In just over six years, Who Gives A Crap has donated more than $8 million.

Tim Jarvis AM

Climate Change Expert, Environmental Scientist, International Explorer Course for Action Tim focuses on lessons he’s learned throughout his various expeditions relating to problem solving, teamwork, change management and goal setting while undertaking such extreme endeavours and how they can be applied to any business. He has great insight after almost two decades of polar travel, and over 20 years working as an environmental scientist, about topics including human-induced environmental change and how we can reduce our own environmental impact. He also looks at the associated opportunities and costs and how to manage change in both our personal and professional lives and at a corporate level. Tim is motivated by a desire to help people achieve key milestones, drawing on parallels from his expeditions and environmental work. His insights apply both to highly motivated individuals working to achieve personal goals as well as organisations embarking on change towards business or sustainability outcomes.

The Many Faces of Resilience The past decade has seen the urban water industry face extreme climatic events in droughts, floods and bushfires. At the same time, record low interest rates and the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted on the economy both positively and negatively.

But the future is different

The industry needs to invest more to meet future climate challenges while protecting the long term interest of customers. In the UK, we see the Scottish water industry working closely with regulators and customers on what is needed to create a climate resilient industry, including CPI+ price increases which have not been seen in Australia for some time. These two sessions will include leaders from Australia and the UK as we unpack the different aspects of a resilient urban water industry including climate change, affordability, customer trends, innovation, water security, asset performance and regional.  The sessions will be facilitated by Adam Lovell, Executive Director, WSAA and include the following speakers and panellists.

We chat to Eric Garcin, Performance & Operational Excellence General Manager at SUEZ about how Australian water utilities are starting to embrace new technologies to build the wastewater treatment plants of tomorrow. You’ve recently returned to Australia after working as the Technical & Innovation Director at SUEZ in Paris. What was your experience like in Europe?

Eric Garcin

Performance & Operational Excellence General Manager

I led the innovation and technical expertise for the Group’s water technology portfolio. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s top experts and take part in several challenging R&D projects. As part of this role, I was also in charge of signing off SUEZ’s process performance guarantees for all major projects, worldwide.

We’re very fortunate to be working with some forward-thinking utilities who are determined to make a difference.

SUEZ is one of the few to offer process performance guarantees in Australia. How does this benefit Australian water utilities? It reduces risk and places more ownership on us to deliver what we promise. Australian water utilities can adopt new technologies and embrace design and innovation because they have the added safety net of SUEZ’s process performance guarantee. How are Australian water utilities leveraging design and innovation to address current challenges and prepare for the future?

12

AUSTRALIAN WATER ASSOCIATION

We’re fortunate to be working with some forward-thinking utilities who are determined to make a difference. They’re searching for new ways to increase savings, optimise plant performance and reduce environmental impacts. They’re adopting

proven, breakthrough smart technologies to shift away from being energy consumers to becoming BioFactories that can transform waste into valuable new resources. Several years of design and innovation led to the concept of the SUEZ BioFactory. How is this concept disrupting the industry’s approach to wastewater management and reuse? The SUEZ BioFactory is made up of several innovative technologies that aim to create new sources of energy and valuable commodities from the wastewater treatment process. Utilities have started combining our patented technologies in new and flexible ways to create their versions of the wastewater treatment plant of tomorrow. CleargreenTM nitrate-shunt and Mainstream Anammox are technologies that are enabling utilities to reduce energy consumption along the wastewater treatment line and allowing maximum carbon redirection for biogas production. Innovative anaerobic digestion technologies are helping utilities achieve cheaper and faster delivery, while DehydrisTM Ultra can help utilities transform biosolids into a valuable product and greatly reduce the volume of materials leaving the plant. Every utility is facing their own unique set of challenges. The value we bring is our breadth of experience and deep understanding of the various combinations these technologies can take, and the expected performance results utilities can achieve in future years of operations.

| RIVERBANK ROOMS 3 & 4 |

| RIVERBANK ROOMS 3 & 4 |

Workshop 1

This workshop aims to equip participants with the data, knowledge, and skills to influence meaningful change in their business. Specifically, participants will: • Explore insights from two global research studies of up to 21,711 participants across industry, including utilities • Understand the risks of a public compliance culture and its impact on safety performance and discretionary effort, including how this relates to workers’ reluctance to report incidents and errors • Understand the role of leadership in driving a culture beyond compliance and encouraging accurate and timely reporting of incidents for learning and improvement • Learn how to improve safety culture maturity by creating trust, collaboration and a willingness to report • Discover a practical roadmap for setting your next cultural transformation project up for success.

AGENDA Part 1: Driving a Positive Safety Culture: Lessons from Industry Investment in safety culture is crucial. Even with the right equipment, experience, and systems, if your people lack the motivation to take responsibility for their own safety, it is not a question of if an incident will occur, but when. But in a landscape where 87% of utilities worksites operate within a negative or unhelpful safety culture, how do businesses unlock the next stage of their safety culture journey? In Part 1 of this workshop, we will explore the five critical opportunity areas to improve safety culture maturity and how to strategically address these to unlock the next stage in your safety culture journey. Part 2: Addressing Incident Under-reporting for Improved Safety Outcomes Accurate and timely reporting of safety incidents is a crucial component of a positive safety culture. These invaluable learning opportunities allow us to adapt, make improvements and prevent future injury. Yet, recent Australian data has found that on average, 31% of incidents go unreported and in some organisations this figure rises as high as 53%. And it is not just frontline workers failing to report; leaders and managers also under-report at alarming rates. In Part 2 of this workshop, we will explore the three key drivers of underreporting and how to strategically address each one to drive improved safety outcomes, along with key takeaways to push your safety culture in a positive direction.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Senior and executive leaders who want to shift their culture and maximise corporate results by using safety culture as an enabler for improved brand, productivity, and financial performance. Conference delegates seeking to improve productivity, reduce the cost of incidents and increase employee engagement with safety are also encouraged to attend. Facilitator: Ben Carnell, Principal Consultant, Sentis, Brisbane

Workshop 2 | ROOM L2 & 3 | DEPARTMENT FOR ENVIRONMENT AND WATER PRESENTS: WATER FOR GROWTH – DEFINING THE WATER SECTOR’S ROLE IN AUSTRALIA’S POST COVID ECONOMIC RECOVERY AND AS A FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE PROSPERITY Water is an essential ingredient for the nation’s future prosperity, particularly as the economy recovers from the impacts of COVID-19. All of Australia’s existing critical export focussed industries and future growth sectors are linked to a sustainable water future. Further, the global water industry is growing faster than most other areas of the economy and Australia is not currently capturing an appropriate share of this international market place. This workshop will provide an opportunity for water sector leaders to define a new future for water in Australia – one that where water is a core enabler for the nation’s economic agenda. The workshop will involve a number of keynote presentations on local, national and local water trends and opportunities, as well as an interactive forum designed to elicit an industry wide direction.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? This session is recommended for water professionals and industry leaders who are interested in the future growth opportunities for the industry over the next decade. Facilitators: • The Hon Karlene Maywald, Managing Director of Maywald Consultants Pty Ltd, South Australian Water Ambassador, Ozwater’21 Co-Chair • Steve Morton, Manager, International Business, Department for Environment and Water

AUSTRALIAN WATER ASSOCIATION

(Wednesday 5 May)

WATERRA PRESENTS: NEXT-GEN WASTEWATER-BASED EPIDEMIOLOGY | COLOSSOS AND BEYOND The ColoSSoS Project – Collaboration on Sewage Surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 – is a major national collaborative effort, that has seen experts in health, microbiology, laboratory testing and wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) all come together to foster research and create positive impact throughout our communities. More than a year after Water Research Australia commenced the ColoSSoS Project to support the nation’s pandemic response, you can learn more about its impact, the research behind it and what it means for the future of wastewater-based epidemiology. Over two days WaterRA and a panel of experts will showcase the amazing work being conducted around the country and internationally on sewage surveillance for SARS-CoV-2. Session 1 will highlight the sewage sampling research, including passive sampling, genomic sequencing and interlaboratory trials. Session 2 will highlight how the collaboration and research has been implemented and adopted by industry, as well as capability building both nationally and internationally, with discussion focussed on industry impact and future application of WBE. Participants will have direct access to the experts that designed and implemented the ColoSSoS Project, and the water industry’s public health response to COVID-19. They will hear of real-life applications of sewage surveillance during a pandemic and will be able to share their organisation’s future WBE plans to receive expert feedback in an interactive Q&A session. Participant of the two panel sessions will be guided through 1) the research as it has developed through the pandemic, and 2) the adoption of research into the water industry and the pandemic response, through understanding the sampling, the value of operators, and navigating the analytical results into translation within an epidemiological context. Facilitator: Dr Kelly Hill, ColoSSoS Project Director, Water Research Australia Panellists: Part 1 (Tuesday 4 May) • Karen Rouse, CEO, Water Research Australia • Dr Nick Crosbie, Recycled Water & IWM Research Manager, Melbourne Water • Dr Kate Griffiths, Senior Molecular Biologist, National Measurement Institute • Associate Professor Aaron Jex, Lab Head, Population Health & Immunity Division, Walter & Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research Part 2 (Wednesday 5 May) • Dr Kaye Power, Principal Strategic Public Health Advisor, Sydney Water • Dr Zenah Bradford-Hartke, Water Unit – Environmental Health Branch, NSW Health • Dr Alex Keegan, Manager Catchments, Wastewater and Environmental Science, SA Water • Dr Monica Nolan, Principal Public Health Officer, Wastewater Surveillance for SARS-CoV-2, Department of Health Victoria • Paul Smith, Head of International & Industry Programs, Australian Water Association • Dr Dan Deere, ColoSSoS Project Manager & Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Consultant, Water Futures

Panel 4 | RIVERBANK ROOMS 7 & 8 | INTERNATIONAL WATER ASSOCIATION AUSTRALIA (IWAA) PRESENTS: LEADING GLOBAL PRACTICES IN RIVER BASIN MANAGEMENT The Leading Global Practices in River Basin Management panel will explore best-practices in governance, strategy, operations and community engagement in managing our rivers and connected basins. From a national and international perspective, leading practitioners will present the state of play in the challenges and successes in river basin management, while providing innovative ideas for future options.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

| ROOM L1 | AWA WATER RECYCLING SPECIALIST NETWORK PRESENTS: PURIFIED RECYCLED WATER FOR DRINKING: THE NEED FOR A NATIONAL APPROACH? There is growing recognition that purified recycled water for drinking is a viable option for securing water supplies into the future. However, barriers remain in exploring and implementing PRWD schemes, including the lack of a national approach. With many parts of Australia facing a drying climate, growing populations, and insecure water supplies, PRWD as a largely untapped climate independent water source, links strongly to the theme of Reimagining our Water Future. Bringing together fresh perspectives from a diverse panel of industry experts, we will explore the opportunities and challenges influencing the implementation of PRWD in Australia. The session will consider the need for a long term and consistent national approach. Specifically, it will explore how it could be developed and adopted, potential advantages and disadvantages of a coordinated approach, as well as how local-specific perspectives and drivers can be incorporated. Considering the recent drought, the topic is a timely one as many organisations explore the role of recycled water as a water security measure.

The target audience includes Leaders, Human Resources and Diversity and Inclusion professionals, those involved with delivering services for the community, and anyone with a passion for human rights, social justice, equity and inclusion. If you want to know more about how diversity enables innovation and improved problem-solving, come along to this panel. Facilitator Jill Sears, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Melbourne Water Panellists • Leon Egan, Director, Wara Paring • Dr Paul Satur, Lecturer/Researcher, Water Sensitive Cities, MSDI Water, Monash Sustainable Development • Leanne Hill, Strategic Procurement Manager, Melbourne Water • Tara Zwaans, Senior Advisor Diversity and Inclusion, People and Capability, Melbourne Water

Australia has been recycling water for decades, however we have limited the ways we use it, and slow to embrace PRWD. Why? Wider scale implementation of PRWD using wastewater and stormwater can provide a sustainable, climate independent source of water. But what does it look like and how do we get there? This panel discussion aims to build on the workshop at Ozwater’19 “Is Australia ready to drink recycled water?” by continuing the conversation and exploring the strategies needed to progress the journey forward. After hearing from the panel, consisting of regional and metropolitan water utilities, regulators, government bodies and industry associations, there will be a facilitated Q&A discussion between panellists and attendees.

Panel 8 | RIVERBANK ROOM 5 | AURECON PRESENTS: FROM PANELS TO PARTNERS – HOW AUSTRALIAN WATER UTILITIES ARE SEEKING TO FOSTER CLOSER, MORE EFFICIENT WORKING RELATIONSHIPS This panel discussion will explore the recent trend among many of the major Australian water utilities away from planning, engineering, and capital delivery panels with multiple service providers towards a more partnering approach. It will unpack the value opportunity behind true collaboration and creating a more outcomes-focussed working environment. The session will address two key topics: why adopt a partnering approach and how to partner successfully. Session participants will work together with the panellists to unpack these two areas:

WHY PARTNER? Historically, much of the planning and engineering support has been provided through panels of service providers, with two or more short-listed companies or consortia competitively tendering for work delivered through the panel arrangement. This approach can become contractual and transactional, driving behaviours that limit the ability to question overall objectives, whether the best outcomes will be achieved and the ability to be adaptive as new challenges arise. Many utilities have now taken a partnering approach where one or at most two suppliers deliver the work through integrated delivery teams working full-time for the utility, typically embedded in the same office. Topic areas will include: • Delivering on vision and strategy through shared understanding • Driving efficiency through integrated delivery teams • Co-creating project needs/objectives/approach to drive better customer outcomes • Breaking down the silos between strategy/planning and capital delivery • Partnering models, why they were selected, and suggested improvements

HOW TO PARTNER SUCCESSFULLY? Developing true partnerships takes time and effort. A critical element is driving a common culture, with all organisations learning from each other. In successful partnerships, the benefits of truly collaborating go beyond the obvious: • Skills and capability development opportunities for all staff through open knowledge sharing leads to greater employee satisfaction • Improved job satisfaction through working collaboratively can improve staff retention The panellists will be asked to reflect on their partnering journey to date, some more mature than others (ranging from 1 to 3 or more years), in terms of what has worked well, what has been challenging, how long it takes to transition and is it starting to achieve the intended outcomes. The panellists will represent some of the major utilities around Australia (such as Sydney Water, SA Water, Urban Utilities, Hunter Water), a Cultural Change specialist, chaired by Julian Briggs from Aurecon who will bring experience of working collaboratively in several alliances and partnerships, sharing insights into how true collaboration can achieve exceptional outcomes. Facilitator: Julian Briggs, Design Director, Water & Waste Water Treatment, Aurecon Panellists: • Amanda Lewry, General Manager Asset Operations and Delivery, SA Water • Kate Miles, Head of Systems & Asset Planning, Sydney Water • Joseph Otter, Manager - Integrated Engineering Services, Integrated Solutions, Urban Utilities • Ryan Leon, Capital Works Industry Partnerships Manager, Yarra Valley Water • Boris Ninkovic, General Manager for SA & QLD, Fulton Hogan Utilities • Kevin Werksman, Global Water Leader, Aurecon • Robert Holmes, Lead, People and Change, Aurecon

Panel 9 | ROOM L2 & 3 | SA WATER PRESENTS: ENERGY TRANSITION IN ACTION: CAPITALISING ON WATER ASSETS FOR A ZERO COST ENERGY FUTURE The water industry is energy intensive, consuming approximately 3,000 gigawatt hours of electricity annually, for which utilities pay an estimated combined average of $250 million per annum. Australia’s geography and climate drive these energy requirements, with the vast distances of our networks increasing pumping requirements, and our dry climate necessitating additional treatment to overcome source water challenges or even turn seawater into fresh. SA Water’s energy management program is capitalising on a water utility’s unique position within the market and demonstrating the way renewable energy can help our transition to a lower carbon economy, in a way that will deliver benefits for both customers and the environment. This session will explore the opportunities and challenges involved with developing a diversified energy portfolio at utility scale, drawing on the expertise of public and private sector organisations from a range of industries.

Workshop 11 | RIVERBANK ROOMS 7 & 8 | YARRA VALLEY WATER/PRIDE IN WATER PRESENTS: CHANNELING LGBTIQ+ CHANGE IN THE AUSTRALIAN WATER INDUSTRY Pride in Water has a vision for an Australian water industry where all LGBTIQ+ people feel safe, included and valued. It is an alliance of people and organisations which connects LGBTIQ+ people and allies working in the water industry throughout Australia. Our shared purpose is to create a more inclusive water industry for LGBTIQ+ staff, contractors, customers and our broader community. This workshop will be an immersive experience for attendees as we facilitate the use of root cause analysis methods (such as the Ishikawa method) to collaboratively identify issues, problems and concerns with LGBTIQ+ inclusion in our industry as well as facilitating conversations and brainstorms on possible industry approaches to tackle these issues. Attendees will be asked to share their lived experience as members of the LGBTIQ+ community or passionate allies in regards to what LGBTIQ+ inclusion means to them and how Pride in Water can assist in achieving this in our industry. This discussion will facilitate a much needed conversation in our industry around the importance of LGBITQ+ inclusion and provides a guided approach to how individuals and organisations can contribute to making our industry a place where LGBTIQ+ people feel safe, included and valued. Pride in Water wants to utilise this opportunity to bring LGBTIQ+ inclusion to the largest stage in our national industry and invite as many people as we can to the table to continue the work we have done and to affect change in our industry. Only a forum like OzWater will enable to connectivity, diversity of representatives and platform that is required to fully understand the needs and requirements of the LGBTIQ+ community across Australia. The information gathered in this workshop will then form a key foundation for Pride in Water to deliver on the needs of the industry but will also empower a large range of individuals to become change champions in their own organisations, something which is vital to support the overall success of Pride in Water. The workshop will emulate the Channeling Change program run by the AWA and will ensure its outcomes align to the broader vision of what the AWA is trying to achieve with Chanelling Change as well as helping attendees realise how LGBTIQ+ inclusion can help us to reimagine our water future.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? In this workshop, Pride in Water hopes to receive the input of a diverse range of individuals and organisations to ensure the level of support and guidance it offers is fit for purpose and ensures that all organisations have an achievable pathway to LGBTIQ+ inclusion in their workplaces. Water professionals who are part of the LGBTIQ+ industry or passionate allies are encouraged to attend to share their experiences regardless of their profession in the industry. Diversity and Inclusion is not just a matter for Human Resources teams, it affects us all. Facilitator/Panellists: • Brendan Moore, Co-Founder of Pride in Water, Manager of Recycled Water Planning and Compliance at Yarra Valley Water • Jacquie Moon, Co-Founder of Pride in Water, Senior Graphic Designer at Yarra Valley Water • Sandra Hall, General Manager of the Advanced Water Management Centre at The University of Queensland

Workshop/Panel 12 | RIVERBANK ROOM 6 | GHD PRESENTS: HOW ARE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE SUPPORTED AT WORK TO “WALK IN TWO WORLDS” AUTHENTICALLY Australia sits at a key moment in our shared history, with awareness of the need to learn from the past and create a safer, sustainable, and more inclusive future for Indigenous people. The water sector is in a unique position to advance the social outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, through our nationwide footprint and shared responsibility to provide fundamental services to all Australians. Closing the Gap in social outcomes


OUR PRINCIPAL SPONSOR

between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians requires leadership to reimagine our future workplaces, to embed participation, employment, and cultural safety. The ‘Walking in Two Worlds’ workshop aims to unpack how organisations can build an authentically inclusive workplace and allow their Indigenous staff to flourish. With greater emphasis on participation in the workforce and involvement in major projects, organisations are increasingly held accountable to measurable targets for Aboriginal participation. Why do some organisation flourish in setting and meeting these targets, while others fall well short of achieving the basic minimum requirements? With demand outweighing supply when it comes to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, a regular challenge for many organisations is the attraction, recruitment and retention of high calibre Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff. This session will explore topics such as attraction, recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, workplace safety and managing cultural loading. By sharing personal experiences and insights from research in a workshop format designed to share lessons, we hope participants will take the lead to support culturally safe workplaces for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Taking action to combat modern slavery makes good business sense. Entities that take action to combat modern slavery in their operations and supply chains can protect against possible business harm and improve the integrity and quality of their supply chains.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? • Procurement and contract managers • Risk and compliance managers • Sustainability managers • Diversity and inclusion representatives • Legal representatives • All levels of suppliers to the water industry • Engineers/project managers • Executive level leaders and board members • Safety representatives • Finance partners Facilitator: Leanne Hill, Strategic Procurement Manager, Melbourne Water

This session is aimed at individuals who have a role in building a culturally safe workplace for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We see this as especially relevant to managers of workplaces, HR professionals, project leads, and members of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

AWA WATER QUALITY SPECIALIST NETWORK PRESENTS: WATER QUALITY MONITORING AND ANALYSIS ON TAP: NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE The quality of water plays a vital role in health aspect of all living beings. From the water we drink, to the water that ends up in the ocean, the local waterway or is reused. From rainwater collected on our rooves, to stormwater that we want to collect. Out in the field, in a storage tank, in the network or at a treatment plant, monitoring and analysis provide the objective evidence necessary to make sound decisions on managing water quality.

Panel 13

The industry is awash with experiences and expertise in the water quality monitoring and analysis space. New problems and old problems; new solutions and old solutions; what works and what doesn’t…there are many stories to share and often they are not isolated cases.

| RIVERBANK ROOM 2 | MELBOURNE WATER PRESENTS: TOGETHER: TACKLING HUMAN RIGHTS AND MODERN SLAVERY RISKS IN OUR SUPPLY CHAINS Since 2017, Victorian Water Corporations have been collaborating to manage environmental and social issues in their supply chains. The VicWater ‘Social Procurement Working Group’ (SPWG) was established and, with the support of KPMG Banarra, has taken a united approach to making sustainable and ethical purchasing decisions. With the publication of the Modern Slavery Act 2018, Water Corporations with consolidated annual revenues above $100M are required to produce an annual statement on how they manage modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chains. The Working Group is excited to present their insights on the collaborative program of work they have implemented in FY20-21 around human rights and modern slavery, including: • Developing a procurement toolkit to assess and manage human rights risks, including modern slavery, in their Request for Tenders and contracts; • Undertaking a number of pilot procurement projects on high risk products and services with the support of KPMG Banarra and the Cleaning Accountability Framework; • Organising and facilitating an industry virtual forum to explore how Water Corporations across Australia could collaborate to evaluate and support suppliers on human rights issues. This panel session will be highly interactive and practical, responding to burning questions that are very relevant to most Australian Water Corporations and to suppliers in the water industry. The panel will not only build awareness of risks of modern slavery in the supply chain but will provide a leading best practice approach to taking positive action for this complex legal and ethical issue. The Associate Director of KPMG Banarra, Human Rights and Social Impact Services, will share their global expertise to provide the must know basics in the Commonwealth Governments Modern Slavery Act (Cth) 2018. As leading experts in this field you will hear of important updates and trends around Modern Slavery. The diverse panel including Vic Water and members of the SPWG will share the sectors learning and discuss typical challenges faced by the sector such as metro versus regional implications. With improved awareness and understanding across the water sector we seek to find opportunities to do things better and to collaborate. The ripple effect of this legislation will cascade to all levels of suppliers as we aim to increase transparency and due diligence of tendering and contracting processes. Modern Slavery Statements are being published in the Department of Home Affairs online registry. Driven initially by a governance requirement, this is an opportunity to demonstrate leadership and maintain reputational expectations of our customers and the community.

This workshop session, run by AWA Water Quality Monitoring and Analysis Specialist Network, aims to connect people through the sharing of stories. Sometimes the wheel does not need to be reinvented when we are up against a problem, it just needs to be reimagined. With the right people in a network, this reimagining can become reality. The key is building that water quality network of your own to provide “on tap” support and knowledge when issues arise. • That’s not an algal bloom, this is an algal bloom! What can an experience with an eight-year-old algal bloom in Mt Isa lend? • How do we prepare for regulatory changes when we don’t know what to expect or when to expect them? Health-Based Targets and Disinfection ByProducts; what do they mean and what can we do now? • How can smart data analytics and/or machine learning work for us? • What can be done to recover after a drought? Does water quality ever go back to “normal”? • When everything is on fire, how can you keep making safe drinking water? Join us for a story telling session followed by an opportunity to connect with others with shared experiences and interests. Come and share your story or ask that burning question. Celebrate the birthday of an algal bloom (hopefully with cake) and walk away with some new members in your own water quality network.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? The workshop will be aimed at those involved or just even interested water quality in all areas of the water industry (e.g. drinking water, reuse, wastewater, asset management/maintenance, catchment management, waterways management, research, regulatory and technology). As this workshop is being run by the AWA Water Quality Specialist Network, this is a great opportunity for the network members to meet face-to-face, as well as strengthening our membership with new faces. Facilitator: Sally Williamson, Lead Process Engineer, Aurecon Panellists: • Tania Strixner-Harvey, Operations Superintendent, Mt Isa Water Board • Chris Chow, Professor of Water Science and Engineering, UniSA • Yulia Shutova, Treatment Process Advisor, Sydney Water • ASM Mohiuddin, Process Manager – Water, Sydney Water
