WWT's flagship Sustainable Water event is back and will take place on 20 September, with senior water industry professionals coming together to discuss long-term resilience and sustainability ahead of PR19 and the development of Water Resource Management Plans (WRMPs).
WWT’s flagship event is back and will take place on 20 September, in association with Anglian Water. Senior water industry professionals will come together to discuss long-term resilience and sustainability ahead of PR19 and the development of Water Resource Management Plans (WRMPs).
The WWT Sustainable Water 2017 event will run for the 6th time in September and will lay out the Government and the regulator’s plans for a sustainable future and tackle security of supply while balancing customer expectations and affordability. Senior-level stakeholders will collaborate to minimise environmental impacts, protect water supplies for future generations, mitigate the risks associated with flooding and drought, and ultimately share their long-term strategies.
Chief executive at Yorkshire Water, Richard Flint will be joining Defra and Ofwat in the opening session to assess the direction of travel and opportunities post-Brexit. Later in the day, the Environment Agency, South West Water and Lincolnshire County Council will provide insight into long-term flooding and drought resilience, followed by a showcase of Wessex, Thames and Bristol Water’s partnership-led approaches.
