New conference will examine water resources
A new event from Water & Wastewater Treatment (WWT) will examine how the sector must build resilience to ensure a secure supply of water for future generations.
The 2020 WWT Water Security in a Changing Environment Conference will look at a number of challenges facing the industry including reducing demand, restoring rivers and delivering environmental commitments.
New regulation and frameworks are instigating change, but what will they mean for the water industry? And how can we act more quickly to mitigate risk and plan for the long term?
The event will address these issues, uniting the water industry and environmental stakeholders to tackle the climate crisis, improve water quality, drive investment in green infrastructure, prevent risk around chalk streams and manage abstraction and trade.
