WWT Drinking Water Quality Conference 2018
With both Brexit and AMP7 on the horizon, it is a crucial time for the UK water industry to build a resilient strategy to protect water quality for future generations.
Increasing regulatory standards, pressures on resources, climate change and rising consumer expectations are among the many challenges facing the sector. Collaboration and innovation will be key in funding the future, protecting the environment and delivering long-term ambitions for water quality.
Back by popular demand, the third annual WWT Drinking Water Quality Conference will assess best-in-class innovation in treatment, evaluate the effectiveness of catchment management approaches and explore new ways to build consumer trust. It will also showcase new approaches to incident management, review the revisions to the Drinking Water Directive, and assess the changes in abstraction laws.
Showcasing specialist scientific research, unique treatment techniques and customer-side risk mitigation case studies, this is the UK s only dedicated event for water quality professionals seeking advice, inspiration and unrivalled networking opportunities.
