Delivering the water industry’s leakage ambitions to safeguard future supply-demand balance is a key commitment for organisations across the water industry, including our teams at WRc working on innovative projects to drive down leakage.
The 22nd Annual Leakage Conference
Already sold out with weeks to go, WRc are delighted to be participating in this year's Annual Leakage Conference on 17th March. The event will feature forums on latest technology, policy, and innovation in the leakage community. Speakers and other attendees from WRc will be utilising this fantastic knowledge-sharing opportunity to connect with water company leakage experts and meet specialist supply chain stakeholders.
Presentations from WRc
Glen Mountford, Director of Technical Consulting and specialist in Leakage Management, is on the morning discussion panel to speak in detail on The Water UK Leakage Routemap. This framework facilitates water companies' ambitious targets to reach three times the current rate of leakage reduction by 2030 and halve leakage by 2050.
Leo Carswell, Principal Consultant and specialist in Innovation and Technology, will be presenting in the afternoon session 'Technical and Operational Developments Forum'. Joined by Jo Parker from UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR), Leo will share details of an exciting project to Transfer Minimal Excavation Technology to the Water Industry. This collaboration paves the way for a new approach to a leak-free future by transforming how the water industry interacts with supply chains. It has enabled development of a functional specification promoted by the water industry as the main guidance for defining the requirements for the application of minimal excavation leak repair technology. Project outcomes will progress the advancement of current water industry approaches to meet UKWIR’s ‘Big Questions’, specifically Zero Leakage by 2050 (BQ2) and Zero Interruptions To Water Supplies by 2050 (BQ3).
