Event Recap: Texas Water 2022
Texas Water 2022, hosted by the Water Environment Association of Texas (WEAT) and the Texas American Water Works Association (TAWWA) celebrated its 26th year as the largest regional water conference in the United States on April 4-7 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
This year’s sold-out conference attracted over 5,000 attendees and featured 6600 exhibits!
WGI was a proud sponsor of this spectacular annual event that caters to professionals in the wastewater and water industry and offers attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and volunteers the opportunity to collaborate and share knowledge with a broad range of experienced industry leaders, operators, engineers, and manufacturers.
This year featured an abundance of exhibitors, technical sessions, and presentations packed with crucial information and opportunities to gain insight into the latest innovative water and wastewater engineering technologies and practices being utilized in municipal and industrial treatment facilities.
Multiple WGI associates were in attendance, including Leigh Thomas, Amy Ramirez, Elizabeth De Leon, Joshua Allen, Jeremy Doege, Christopher Velasquez, and Edgar Segovia.
Texas Water 2022 broke records with an impressive 660 sold-out booths, supporting the argument for how vital the information and experiences shared at this event can be for water quality engineers, treatment plant technicians, scientists, government officials, regulatory agency personnel, manufacturers and their agents, libraries, universities and groups and individuals concerned with protecting public health and the environment.
WGI’s Leigh Thomas, PE, was a featured speaker for the “I to I” technical session where she discussed the identification, implementation, and remediation of water and wastewater infrastructure.
WGI’s Chris Velasquez and Joshua Allen were selected to present their teams’ work that involved integrating GIS into site investigations and utility designs on multiple WGI projects.
Thousands of attendees viewed their work and approached them to inquire about their experience utilizing ArcGIS software and implementing it into their design efforts.
In addition to the packed exhibit floor and top-quality technical sessions, Texas Water also hosted a golf tournament fundraiser, led by the planning efforts of WGI’s Jeremy Doege, to raise money and provide local communities in need with clean, sanitated water that promotes improved health and hygiene.
WGI’s Water + Wastewater Engineers incorporate the latest technologies and practices into every project plan and design aspect. Contact our team today and let’s discuss how we can provide support on your major project.
