SBWWI Leakage and Metering Conference and Workshop
Water Demand - Meeting The Customer
Innovation in Leakage, Metering and
Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Nr Leamington
Leakage remains a high priority challenge as the water industry
moves into AMP 6. At the time of writing, some water companies have
had their business plans for AMP 6 confirmed, and some are still in
consultation with the regulators. However, it is clear that
customers want to see lower leakage levels and this is reflected in
the draft and final business plans. Added to this the Environment
Agency is looking at how the Water Resource Planning Guidelines
need to change for 2019, and of course leakage forms a key part of
this process. Further progress on increasing meter penetration is
planned in AMP 6 also to help deliver a sustainable water supply
and to drive improvements in customer service.
The SBWWI's Leakage and Metering Conference and Workshop in
December 2014, themed 'Meeting the customer challenge' will bring
industry experts, water companies, and the supply chain together to
discuss the challenges and opportunities. Day
one will explore water metering and how this helps improve
services to customers and support demand and leakage
reduction. Day one as well as hearing from case studies
and industry experts, will include an interactive workshop session
to address some key challenges. Day two will
focus more on leakage and will address leakage management from the
companies and the customer points of view.
In addition, there will be a workshop drinks reception and
dinner to allow attendees to day one and/or day two to network and
discuss issues in more detail.

Building a Compelling Case to Secure Partnership Funding
Webinar | 14.00-15.00 GMT | Organised by
Ricardo - AEA
Major flooding events across the UK in recent years have focused
political attention on local flood risk and catchment management.
As a result, there has been a greater drive for Lead Local Flood
Authorities (LLFAs) and environmental management organisations to
bridge funding gaps for flood risk and catchment management through
innovative partnership funding approaches. Accessing partnership
funding can be difficult because lead organisations will need to
demonstrate a strong business case demonstrating return on
investment (ROI) as well as working in partnership with numerous
other stakeholders who have relevant responsibilities to deliver
improvements. In fact, without a rigorous and systematic approach
to building a strong business case, the probability of winning
partnership funding can be slim.
Join us for our complimentary webinar and find
out how to:
- Understand funding opportunities available
- Structure a simple cost-benefit analysis of the options
- Identify the economic, employment and GVA benefits of each
project and demonstrate commercial return on investment
