At the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) Annual Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 13, Tetra Tech employees participated in and led technical discussions about all elements of the water cycle. The conference, held in June in Denver, Colorado, provided the opportunity for Tetra Tech experts to share project experience and relevant knowledge with our water industry peers.

Growing demands on limited water resources contributed to increased attendance at AWWA ACE 13, one of the water industry’s largest North American conferences. More than 10,500 attendees from the global water community explored the water sector's most relevant issues.

Our employees gave technical presentations as lead authors and co-authors of papers and posters, addressing all phases of the water cycle.  From planning for aging infrastructure to ultrafiltration to indirect potable reuse, Tetra Tech shared the types of best practices and lessons learned that our clients have come to expect from the company Engineering News-Record has ranked #1 in Water for a decade.
