The Stormwater NSW Conference Organising Committee woudl like to thank all attendees at the ,2017 Stormwater NSW Conference.
In 2017, we travelled to the first time to Newcastle. Set on the southern bank of the Hunter River, Newcastle was established in the early 1800’s as a port for the coal mines in surrounding areas, and is now the world’s largest coal export port and the centre for trade from the mining resources of the Hunter Valley. The city continues to be a booming industrial centre for the wider Hunter area.
It is apt, therefore, that this year’s Conference theme was 'Building the Momentum'. This is a theme that resonates not only with Newcastle’s story of growing through change, but our story as a part of the stormwater industry in Australia. We too have been 'Rising to the Challenge (the theme of the 2016 Stormwater Australia Conference) and fresh off the heels of last year’s senate inquiry into stormwater, we are working on not just overcoming these challenges, but pushing forward, gathering speed and support to approach stormwater a little differently. We want to recognise the importance of stormwater as one of many factors integral to the liveability and resilience of our cities, and achieve a truly integrated approach to its management.
