PHOENIX, April 10, 2012 /CNW/ - GWR Global Water Resources Corp. (TSX: GWR) and Global Water Resources, Inc. ("Global Water") today announced that Global Water President and CEO Trevor Hill will be presenting at the Smart Water Systems forum in London, UK, at the Copthorne Tara Hotel on April 16-17, 2012.  Along with industry and thought leaders from the sector, Mr. Hill will be speaking on "Bringing The Consumer Into The Smart Grid For Water - Strategies For Engaging The Consumer In Conservation".

"It is imperative that we recognize the smart grid for water is not just about meters and end-points," said Mr. Hill.  "It's about engaging the consumer in managing their own consumption and providing them access to the tools necessary to modify their behavior in light of dwindling supplies.  The timing of this event is fitting, considering the current and projected drought conditions in the United Kingdom today, and demonstrates the international applicability of systems like FATHOM™.  This event continues Global Water FATHOM™'s leadership role in modernizing data systems, optimizing water use, and providing the data to customers."
