Sometimes when operating water and sewerage networks, things don’t go according to plan: assets can fail, errors are made, designs aren’t always right. Learning from these experiences is critical to ensure we can design and build robust assets that meet customer and community expectations and fulfil our purpose of enriching quality of life. Drawing from his experience in operations of sewerage networks, Peter will take us through a variety of these instances when things didn’t go according to plan, and what we can learn from them.
