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.

Speakers include:

Jean Spencer, chair - National Water Resources Framework

Paul Hickey, managing director - RAPID

Yvette de Garis, head of environmental engagement - Thames Water

Patric Bulmer, head of water resources and environment - Bristol Water

Alice Elder, water quality strategy manager - Affinity Water

Ben Earl, head of water efficiency - Southern Water

Clair Dunn, head of water quality - Anglian Water

Isobel Bishop, freshwater scientist and research manager - Earthwatch Europe

WWT Water Security in a Changing Environment 2020 will take place on 6 May at the National Conference Centre (aka Motorcycle Museum), Birmingham.
