Water and Wastewater Networks: Delivering Cost-Effective Resilience

Date: 20th June 2019

Location: Manchester

Water companies face an array of issues encompassing environmental, financial and societal pressures. Sewer networks (often constructed in the Victorian era) include CSOs that risk discharging dilute but untreated wastewater under peak flow, whilst the strain on potable water supply mains have resulted in reduced pressure during high summer periods. Leakage also remains a key issue in potable water, with recent high profile fines failing to demonstrate sufficient ‘oversight and control’.

This event will cover clean and wastewater networks – from inspect/maintain regimes to new infrastructure and resilience, within the context of: Ofwat demands to decrease bills and leakage; increasing population and pressures on water supply; climate change.

Key themes

  • Current and emerging approaches to leak detection and reduction in waste and clean water networks
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Inspection, monitoring and real-time control
  • Sewer blockages (FOG and non-flushable products)
  • Leakage prevention
  • Networks as buffers – retrofitting into established infrastructure and designing capacity into new infrastructure
  • What does climate change resilience look like for clean water and waste water networks?

Do you have something to say on this topic?
