Water and Wastewater Networks: Delivering Cost-Effective Resilience

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 water pressure; climate change.

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

Conference 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?
