Show Summary

Welcome to a slightly different episode of Future Water this week. Our community AquaLAB Connect has been up and running now for about 6 months and we’ve welcomed senior water professionals from around the globe into our platform. This has led to a lot of interesting and candid conversations about the future of water innovation, the big challenges utilities everywhere are facing and the big ideas our community is speculating about.

I’ve invited AquaLAB’s Director Saskya Hunter onto the show today to talk about some of the brilliant discussion points that have emerged in the community to give our listeners insight into what happens when you bring together the global water brainstrust.
