With more than 10,000 visitors, roughly 330 exhibitors and 19 parallel sessions, the congress was the largest ever. All presentations, workshops, forums, specialist group meetings and study visits was fulfilled by this year's theme Water for smart livable cities; meetings and networking played a central role in this year's edition.
Stormwater&Sewers was represented by Annelie Hedström, Inga Herrmann, Kelsey Flanagan, Lena Goldkuhl, Nikita Razguliaev, Iván Mantilla and Sylvia Kowar, as well as Magnus Bäckström from Boden municipality, one of the members in Stormwater&Sewers.
Nikita Razguliaev gave a presentation on how to detect errors in measurement data from stormwater sampling and Iván Mantilla exhibited a poster on how different infiltration rates affect the space needed for green infrastructure. The IWA's Small Water and Wastewater Systems Specialist Group had a meeting organized by Inga Herrmann, the Group's Chair.
