Governor’s Conference to Address the Future of Water in Kansas
Greg Towsley of Grundfos North America will speak at the event
Grundfos will lend its perspective to the second annual Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas, Oct. 24 to 25 in Manhattan, Kan.
The conference will highlight the latest policy and research developments of water issues in the state, covering topics such as drought resilience, the value of water and the challenges of meeting Kansas’ water needs.
Greg Towsley, director of regulatory and technical affairs for Grundfos North America, will speak at the event, providing attendees with a detailed understanding of the applied technologies available for water and energy efficiency.
"Here in Kansas, we’re currently fortunate enough to have adequate amounts of inexpensive water and electricity," Towsley said. "That won’t always be the case, however. In the future, Kansas will need to rely on innovations in water management technology to use its limited water resources more efficiently."
Towsley will address conference attendees in a technical session on irrigation and water management solutions that have been successfully applied in other regions, explaining how Kansas could use such technologies to maintain high-quality water resources at low costs. He also will provide an overview of the water research currently in development.
A gold sponsor, Grundfos will have an informational exhibition at the event, where attendees can learn more about the company’s innovative and efficient products. On display will be Grundfos’ CUE variable frequency drive, which is designed to control pump speed in heating, pressure boosting, water treatment, and commercial and industrial applications.
