WWT Wales Water Conference

The 5th annual WWT Wales Water Conference is the flagship annual gathering for all participants who contribute to, or benefit from, a profitable, sustainable and efficient Welsh Water sector.

As environmental, social and regulatory pressures increase, the water sector in Wales must ensure that it is resilient enough to deal with an uncertain future.

Safeguarding customers and the environment, investing in the right areas, and mitigating the impacts of flooding, drought and pollution are among the many challenges facing the industry. 

The 5th annual WWT Wales Water Conference is the flagship annual gathering for all participants who contribute to, or benefit from, a profitable, sustainable and efficient Welsh Water sector. It brings together key stakeholders to discuss how to build an innovative and resilient future for Wales.
