Thank you!

The Nordic Drinking Water Conference 2016 was held on September 28-30, at Harpa Conference Hall in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The program was particularly ambitious and we were happy to see so many participants! Congratulations to Philip McCleaf from Uppsala Vatten och Avlopp AB, who was awarded Best presenation 2016.

Thank you all for a good conference. We hope you learnt a lot and had some fun along the way.

See you in Norway in 2018!


The conference program for this years conference is particularly strong. There were a record number of abstracts submitted, resulting in the selection of presentations, workshops and poster presentations on offer, representing a truly interesting and comprehensive cross section of the current research and development activities in the Nordic countries.
