1st Annual (2019)

Planning the UK’s Water Infrastructure

Planning for a resilient water network and meeting the UK’s water needs - delivering additional water infrastructure and supply
Thursday 05 September 2019 Burges Salmon, London
With billions of pounds worth of investment planned by water companies between 2020-2050, what improvements are planned and what does this mean for water infrastructure and supply? How does the industry need to react now to meet future water supply needs and ensure resilience to drought and flood? The event will provide a complete update on the plans for water infrastructure including a focus on how to meet future water demands and create a resilient network. The event will explore the delivery of new infrastructure and projects, but also how to improve existing infrastructure, through measures including the reduction in leakages and the use of new technology.

Highlights of attending: 


  • Hear how the industry needs to respond to meet future supply needs – what infrastructure is needed and how can improvements be delivered to existing infrastructure
  • Explore the regulatory framework for water and if the current system fully supports the delivery of new infrastructure
  • Understand the options for reducing leakage on the network, including a focus on new technologies and the use of data
  • Consider the role of infrastructure in creating a more sustainable environment
  • Explore what the water NPS means for future water infrastructure delivery

Yorkshire Water discuss reducing leakage, planning for long term water needs and where on the network investment is most needed

Ahead of Planning the UK’s Water Infrastructure on 5th September in London, Claire Brightley, Yorkshire Water's Lead Carbon Advisor, shares her insight on reducing leakage, the infrastructure investment needs and planning for the future.

Why should I attend?

Attend to hear the plans for delivering the water infrastructure required to meet future needs. Explore how this can be achieved by both replacing existing infrastructure and making better use of data, and delivering new infrastructure. With the plans for PR19 under development, attend to hear the latest plans and explore if the current system fully supports investment in infrastructure.

Interesting to see what challenges and solutions other projects and people in the industry have experience of.
