Greetings from Austin, Texas!

CH2M HILL is once again sponsoring and participating in the 2015 Utility Management Conference (UMC), jointly hosted by thUMC14e American Water Works Association and the Water Environment Federation. This year’s event is being held in Austin, Texas, from February 17-20.

Our staff look forward to leading discussions and presenting on topics ranging from practical applications of continuous improvement programs to short term private management of water systems, knowledge management in asset management, and smart water systems using machine-to-machine technology.
