TASMANIA New Tasmanian State President Tim Gardner, Executive Chairman, Stornoway has been appointed as the Tasmanian State President of the Australia Water Association. Tim outlines his vision for the Association here. “It is a very exciting time for the Tasmanian water industry with unprecedented investment in water infrastructure, both municipal and agricultural, along with a growing global recognition of Tasmania as a premium tourism destination and food bowl, both of which rely heavily on clean water to sustain their reputation. “The State also continues to grow as the hub for Southern Ocean research, as well as the key staging point for the Antarctic. With this in mind, I would like to see the Australian Water Association raise its profile in the public debate about the future of water on and around the state, facilitating discussion that draws upon a wide range of scientific, technical and operational knowledge to support informed decision making. “In firming up our direction for the coming years, we will be drawing upon the business strategy and resources of the Association nationally as they apply to Tasmania, as well as gaining feedback from our state membership as to your priorities. “I’m looking forward to being able to build on the good work done by the outgoing Executive and to further develop the Association as the peak representative body for the water industry in Tasmania.” www.au.hach.com 1300 887 735 NEW!
