Black & Veatch on April 8 said it was contributing to the technical program at the IUVA/IOA North American Conference, co-sponsored by the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) and the International Ozone Association (IOA) conference and set for May 4-5 in Boston, Mass.

“The associations sponsoring this conference are committed to enhancing the water industry’s understanding and effective use of advanced disinfection technologies,” said Bruce Long, the firm's Global Drinking Water Practice & Technology leader.
