The Australasian Corrosion Association will host a one-day technical seminar, Maximising Durability in the Water Industry, at the Royal Society of Victoria in Melbourne on Monday, 6th May.

Australia is the driest inhabited continent on Earth and one of the world’s highest consumers of water. Among OECD nations, Australia is ranked fourth-highest in water usage per capita. It faces increasingly acute long-term water shortages through lower rainfall, rivers drying up and dam water levels falling.

In addition, valuable water is lost in the water and water treatment industry because of corrosion. The total estimated cost of corrosion in the Australian urban water industry is approximately $982 million (ACA 2010 Corrosion Challenges Report). Given the importance of this issue, the Association’s Water and Waste Water Treatment Technical Group has planned a program that will investigate ways of maintaining water assets and protecting them from corrosion, bringing together a range of stakeholders to discuss various issues and their management across the water and wastewater industries.

Building on the success of previous water and water treatment industry events, this seminar will draw from the presenters’ and audiences’ experiences and the lessons they have learnt through real life case studies, and openly explore both successes and failures.

David Johnstone from AzkoNobel will present a case study, Waterproofing for the future – Black Hill Reservoir Case Study. Justin Rigby will share a case study on the Sunbury Recycled Water Treatment Plant and how asset durability can be extended through cementitious repair. These presentations, together with other notable speakers, will reveal industry best practice and lessons learned, while also providing a catalyst for discussion and information sharing.

Networking drinks will follow the presentations to provide an opportunity for further discussion and relationship building.
