Zurn Industries LLC will help commence the Water Council’s eleventh annual Water Leaders Summit on June 27, as part of the Water Technology District tour. The walking tour takes attendees from the Global Water Center to the Reed Street Yards Water Tech Business Park, before concluding with the Customer Experience Center, located directly next door from the Harley Davidson Museum.
“From the Milwaukee River to the shores of Lake Michigan, water pumps through the veins of our city,” says Cassandra Wurster, Zurn product training manager. “Milwaukee makes sense for Zurn’s headquarters, but to be in the heart of the Water Technology District, it’s so much more. We’re reminded of our company mission every day we walk or drive down Freshwater Way. It’s a privilege to be the last stop on the tour and we’re thankful the Water Council considered us within its list of influencers.”
Designed by Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) and constructed by C.D. Smith Construction Inc., the Zurn headquarters has achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The manufacturer’s water solutions are installed throughout the facility, contributing to its 45 percent reduction in water usage compared to a standard code-compliant building. In 2017, the building received the Annual Mayor’s Design Award for design excellence.
The two-day Water Leader Summit will be held at The Garage within the Harley-Davidson Museum campus. Every year, this event attracts industry experts and decision makers from around the world, spanning education, private and government agencies. The Water Council hosts the summit to discuss issues and introduce water technologies and infrastructure developments.
The theme for the summit this year is Global Industries Revving up Water Tech Demand. Hot topics will cover water innovations, community impact, water tech demand, and water conservation. Click here for more information on the Water Leaders Summit.
