WWT Ireland Water 2020
The Irish Water Sector has made great progress over the years, however there are still some pressing challenges to overcome, from the impact of economic restraints to unprecedented demand for growth in the water networks, compounded with Brexit and approaching price control periods.
The Ireland Water Conference brings together 200+ key stakeholders and provides a platform to tackle these challenges through engaging panel debates and interactive working groups, whilst also highlighting some of the good work being done within Ireland and the UK. Including meeting water quality requirements, delivering on capital requirements and tackling the leakage problem.
