OAWWA and OWEA are excited to announce that the Call for Abstracts for the 2023 One Water Technical Conference is now open! This conference is August 21-24 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.


The water and wastewater industries both face similar challenges with new and current regulatory requirements and development of emerging technologies as well as industry maintenance of our aging infrastructure being at a premium for our water and wastewater providers. We are looking to provide our members and conference attendees with a unique opportunity to gain professional development and educational opportunities for both industries at the same time. We have selected the technical topics listed to the right for our concurrent technical program to cover the educational goals of this joint conference.


Abstracts should include concise information and must be no more than 600 words and in either Microsoft Word or PDF format. This information will be used to review and select presentations for the conference technical program.


Presentation time slots will be 45 minutes long. Content of presentation should be 40 minutes in length, allowing for 5 minutes for Q&A.
