Drinking Water Quality conference to highlight regulatory standards
Water company directors, chief scientists and water quality experts are set to gather on November 8th to discuss the challenges facing drinking water quality from source to tap.
Increasing regulatory standards both domestically and from the EU, pressures on resources, climate change and rising consumer expectations are among the many challenges facing the sector.
The third annual WWT Drinking Water Quality Conference on 8 November in Birmingham 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.
The event is held in partnership with Northumbrian Water Group (NWG). NWG’s chief executive Heidi Mottram will give the opening address, followed by a keynote presentation from Drinking Water Inspectorate Chief Inspector Marcus Rink.
Other notable speakers during the day will include Dr Martin Padley (Director of Water and Scientific Services, United Utilities), Dr Robin Price (Head of Water Quality, Anglian Water), Dr Phillippa Pearson (Head of Water Services Science, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water) and Dr Dinah Hillier (Catchment Control Manager, Thames Water).
The event is sponsored by Analytical Technology (ATi) and Atkins (part of the SNC-Lavalin Group).
