Description

ESi Environmental Workshop: Water use and resilience in the golf sector

The meeting will provide an opportunity for golf course managers, club managers, owners and associations representing the golf sector, to meet The Envirnoment Agency and water company's to discuss water use now, and over the next 20 years.

The key areas for discussion will include:

  1. Abstraction licenses – continuing reductions

  2. Borehole – restrictions in the availability of new sites

  3. Use of potable water for irrigation – how common is this in the golf sector

  4. Potential drought orders/Temporary Use Bans for irrigation on golf courses

  5. Planning the move away from potable water for irrigation – water storage ponds, swales & reservoir

  6. The importance of golf courses to allow infiltration of water for groundwater recharge and soft flood alleviation

Understanding the statutory requirement's facing water suppliers and regulators is also vital for the golf sector, and the Environment Agency, Affinity water, Thames Water will outline:

  1. European regulations on abstraction volumes

  2. Increasing populations and demand

  3. Demand management and reducing per capita consumption

  4. PR19 (Price Review) and Ofwat focus on consumer price and capital availability for infrastructure investment

  5. Water company’s Water Resource Management Plan (WRMP) how to satisfy multiple demands and the priorities

  6. Maintenance of water quality – vulnerability of surface and ground water to contaminated runoffs

We are using a scarce resource that is in increasing demand, and understanding the regulatory landscape and adapting to the coming changes is essential
