Water industry in Wales to discuss strategy and regulation

Senior finance, investment, asset management, environment, wastewater, customer services and commercial figures from across Wales' water sector are gathering on the 25th May at the 2016 Wales Water Conference, taking place at the Cardiff Holland House Hotel.

Wales is fortunate in its plentiful water resource and the Welsh water sector has demonstrated the expertise to optimise it; however, maintaining the balance between protection and exploitation will require increasing collaboration and smart thinking by all stakeholders.

Senior finance, investment, asset management, environment, wastewater, customer services and commercial figures from across Wales’ water sector are gathering on the 25th May at the 2016 Wales Water Conference, organised by WWT and taking place at the Cardiff Holland House Hotel.

Following the success of the first two events which set out the Water Strategy for Wales, the sector will have the chance to hear updates on its implementation, find out the next steps for the Water Framework Directive and address multiple customer, asset management and supply chain matters.

Bringing together the Welsh Government; Ofwat; Natural Resources Wales; water utilities; consultants; contractors; customer bodies; NGOs and other key stakeholders, Wales Water 2016 will facilitate the conversation on how the sector can move forward and optimise the benefits from one of Wales’ most precious natural resources.

The day will be chaired by Professor Steve Ormerod, chair of the RSPB Council and professor of ecology at Cardiff University. Further confirmed speakers include:
