ISA LogoCeline Hyer, a long-time American Water Works Association (AWWA) member, will present a keynote address at ISA’s WWAC Symposium entitled “Facing Utility Challenges: Managing Risk and Addressing Aging Infrastructure Needs.” Hyer is a principal consultant with the Red Oak Division of Malcolm Pirnie/ARCADIS in Tampa, FL, where she leads the asset management practice for the South.

Taking place August 7–9 in Orlando, FL, the International Society of Automation’s 2012 ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls (WWAC) Symposium is a three-day event that focuses on the challenges associated with automation and instrumentation in the water and wastewater sectors. Now in its seventh year, the annual symposium offers an opportunity for automation professionals from the water and wastewater sectors to come together to share ideas, network and earn continuing education credits.

The program features two full days of technical speakers/presentations, a tour of a local water treatment plant, a general reception, networking events, a poster session and a supplier showcase. Tom DeLaura, Water Environment Federation (WEF) Automation and Info Tech Committee chair, will also give a guest presentation on automation technology trends in the wastewater sector. DeLaura, vice president of Eramosa Engineering International, is a long-time member of both ISA and WEF, and has a career in the wastewater sector that spans over 38 years.

The 2012 symposium offers a program of more than 25 technical papers and presentations. “This year’s WWAC symposium program is a mix of instrumentation, SCADA, cyber-security and human factor topics. The program offers insight to anyone who works in either the water or wastewater sector,” says Symposium Program Chair Joe Provenzano, who has been active in the industry for over 40 years.

Symposium attendees can receive up to 2.0 CEUs or 20 professional development hours (PDHs) for participating in the symposium.
