    SBWWI Leakage and Metering Conference and Workshop

    Water Demand - Meeting The Customer Challenge
    Innovation in Leakage, Metering and Demand Management

    Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Nr Leamington Spa

    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 available
    • Identify the economic, employment and GVA benefits of each project and demonstrate commercial return on investment
