Protecting UK Water Quality: Improving Water Management and Tackling Pollution

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 10:15 to 16:30
Central London

Latest biodiversity indicators show that between 2012 and 2017, there has been a 33% reduction of surface water bodies in England with high or good status (DEFRA, 2018). Moreover, roughly half of all groundwater bodies are not expected to reach good chemical status in time for 2021 targets. Whilst the total number of events has declined, serious pollution incidents continue to occur at an alarming rate. Over the last ten years, the amount of serious water pollution events caused by water companies has been consistent at around 60 incidents per year (Environment Agency, 2018).

Event Description

Call for papers open now! Submit an abstract by Friday 29 March 2019.

Surface water flooding threatens more people and properties in the UK than any other form of flood risk. With the UK Climate Projections warning that winter rainfall could increase by 35%, coupled with an increased likelihood of convective summer storms, it is essential to ensure that our infrastructure is resilient to, and can cope with, increased volumes of surface water.
