Mark your calendars for the 2019 VWEA 2019 Education Seminar. This year’s seminar Pulling Common Threads- The Water Energy Nutrient Nexus focuses on industry trends to reduce energy use, meet increasingly stringent nutrient limits, while preserving and protecting the water environment. Session topics include case studies on in-house optimization of resource recovery facilities, approaches to sustainable master planning for utilities, and updates on the latest research in the industry. This year we are also including a special “mock-trial” where industry experts will debate the value of using carbon for BNR vs. carbon for energy recovery. Speakers include national experts, municipal utility personnel and administrators, plant operational personnel and administrators, regulators, consultants, industry representatives, citizens, and equipment manufacturers.

The Education Committee is pleased to announce an exciting opening event trifecta:


-         Dr. Nancy Love - Borchardt and Glysson Collegiate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan

-         Jim McQuarrie – Director of Strategy and Innovation at the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District, Denver Colorado

Mock Trial:

-         Carbon for Energy or Carbon for BNR: A Landmark Case for Resource Management – Dr. Chris Wilson (Chief of Process Engineering and Research, HRSD), Sam Jeyanayagam (Jacobs Engineering and WEF Fellow), Dr. Wendell Khunjar (Director of Applied Wastewater Research, Hazen & Sawyer) and Beverly Stinson (VP, AECOM)


Three concurrent sessions dedicated to understanding operator optimization, collaborative planning and applied research within the Nexus will be offered in the afternoon, and attendees will be offered CPE credits for attending the technical sessions.

In addition to the technical program the Education Committee has partnered with the Central Virginia Regional Activities Committee (CVRAC) to develop an expanded social event on Wednesday May 8th from 6:30-9:30PM. Tickets to this event may be purchased separately and will include access to the exhibition hall, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and two drink tickets.
