Event description

Description

Groundwater is a vital source of water for public supply, agriculture and industry in the U.K. It is also the source for one million people in the U.K. served by private water supplies (PWS) where the main municipal water supply system connection is not practical, or where PWS is the preferred option. In the past a major attraction of using groundwater was that it required little or no treatment, but this is increasingly no longer the case and groundwater quality has deteriorated significantly over the last few decades.


Conference Aims

The conference will bring a range stakeholders together concerned with the quality of groundwater. Importantly, it will address the requirements of both large and small scale operators and users of groundwater sources across the U.K., including those reliant on privately owned water supplies. It will review the risks, monitoring requirements and evolving regulatory needs, along with treatment technologies and strategies necessary to mitigate risks and safeguard sources of supply.

  • Local authority representatives
  • Water company personnel
  • Environmental regulators, planners and policymakers
  • Public health
  • Owners and operators of Private Water Supply systems
