ASTT hosts trenchless stream at Water NZ

The Australasian Society for Trenchless Technologies (ASTT) provided a discerning stream of talks in collaboration with Water New Zealand last week – bringing operators from the industry in to share insights and practical knowledge on utilising trenchless technologies in sustainable industry projects.

Water New Zealand’s 2022 Conference and Expo brought together some of the most insightful speakers in the water industry last week to share their ideas and vision for the future of sustainability in the industry.

Operators in the water and wastewater industry were given the opportunity to connect and collaborate, helping to form Whanaungatanga – or, ‘close connections or kinship’ – within the industry to allow innovations to thrive.

Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta’s keynote address called on all operators within the industry, saying that the time to make a change is now.

“The current changes and reform present us with the opportunity to be aspirational about how we want key services to be delivered in the future,” Mahuta said.
