Call for Presentation Proposals

WateReuse is now accepting presentation proposals for its 2023 Annual Symposium to be held in person March 5-8th, 2023, in Atlanta, GA at the Marriott Marquis. The deadline for the 2023 Call for Presentations has been extended one week until Friday, October 7th at 11:59 pm PST due to Hurricane Ian storm conditions and evacuations affecting the southeast. WateReuse Association hopes everyone will stay safe during this major storm.

The 38th Annual WateReuse Symposium will bring together water professionals to envision the critical role of water recycling in the future of water management. Georgia and the Southeast U.S. are quickly emerging as water recycling hotspots, and this year’s Symposium will highlight how diverse communities can benefit from water reuse. 

Please read the Call for Presentations carefully before submitting a proposal.


A conference registration discount will be provided for all speakers.
