Singapore Is Last Venue for Black & Veatch's Water Reuse Roundtables
Black & Veatch will conclude its global series of water reuse roundtables at this year’s Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) later this month. The event marks the final stop of a four-country series that included six industry dialogue sessions held in Paris, Brisbane, Chicago, Orlando, Washington, D.C., and Singapore.
The Singapore session will feature Professor Robert Glennon, who will open the session on June 30. Glennon is the author of Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What To Do About It, which was published in April 2009 by Island Press. He also is the Morris K. Udall Professor of Law and Public Policy in the Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona Black & Veatch executives will host approximately one dozen other leaders from the public and private sector to discuss “Overcoming Barriers to Water Reuse in an Integrated Water Portfolio.”
“Singapore was chosen as the final location for this dialogue because the country serves as a best-practice model in adaptive water management,” said Dan McCarthy, president and chief executive officer of Black & Veatch’s global water business. “The session will conclude an enlightening series of conversations that have helped our partners learn more about the challenges we collectively face to resolve.”
A white paper that summarizes the findings from all six global sessions will be available later in the summer.
The firm will again gather impressions from the event through its event blog, www.SIWWDIARY.com. In addition, Len Rodman, Black & Veatch chair, president and chief executive officer, will co-chair the America’s Business Forum on July 1. Rodman is a member of Singapore’s Environmental and Water Technologies International Advisory Panel.
