Phosphorus and beyond: Modelling, managing and regulating emerging contaminants in surface waters

Sharing best practices to address emerging contaminants – transforming the findings from CIP1 and CIP2 into actions that improve water quality.

The Water Framework Directive has encouraged a range of interventions intended to reduce phosphorus input to water courses – both from diffuse and point sources:

  • Technical solutions installed at wastewater treatment facilities;
  • Flexible approaches to water quality permitting;
  • Catchment-scale approaches.

This conference will consider the progress that has been made on reducing phosphorus concentrations in surface waters, and what can be learned from these initiatives to address emerging contaminants and other hazards (such as microplastics and Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR)).

Key themes

  • Successes in farmer engagement
  • Regulatory approaches to water quality
  • Successes in implementing the requirements of the Stockholm Convention
  • Tackling microplastics at catchment scale: origins and options
  • Tackling AMR at catchment scale: origins and options
