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.
