The City of Akron and the Akron Global Water Alliance (AGWA) organized the annual USA Water Conference 2017 on May 31 – June 1, 2017, at the University of Akron, Akron, Ohio. The Conference covered HABs, Algal Toxins and other Emerging Issues in Water Treatment. Over 200 delegates attended the conference.
Due to a tight collaboration between the Dutch Water Alliance and AGWA the Dutch contributed with a large number presentations. Presentations by the Water Alliance, Deltares, European Water Stewardship, University of Amsterdam and BW Products were well received by the audience. For some of these particular interest by US parties might pave the way to further collaboration.
