WaterSource18 Conference

What – Welsh Water conference; catchment science and the future of evidence-based land management for water quality in Wales
When – 09:30 – 16:15, Thursday 22nd March 2018
Where – Principality Stadium, Cardiff, CF10 1NS

Effective catchment management is Welsh Water’s ‘first line of defence’ to ensuring that our raw water quality is of an expected, consistent and manageable quality. 
To understand how the land around our drinking water sources affects raw water and how water behaves when it is in our rivers, reservoirs and groundwaters, we are using cutting edge research and trialling new solutions and technologies to protect our water sources. 

This year, our WaterSource18 conference will be reviewing how catchment science, evidence-based land management and international learning can futureproof water quality in Wales. 

Global learning opportunity 
We are delighted to be joined by representatives from New York’s Catskill Watershed Corporation, Watershed Agricultural Council and the New York City Department of Environment’s Water Supply Bureau who will deliver our keynote speech on 20 Years of Catchment Management in the Catskill Watershed, New York. 

The Catskill programme has achieved great success in progressing catchment management over the million acre Catskill/Delaware watersheds that provide a reliable water source to over 9 million people in New York State and New York City. 

An evidence-based approach to catchment management 
During the day, we will also be demonstrating how our evidence-based approach to catchment management is leading to improvements in raw water quality, share our PR19 plans for furthering Catchment Science and identify shared values, common interests and opportunities for future collaboration. 

Who should attend?
Government, Policy Makers, Regulators, Academia, Agricultural Sector, Forestry Sector, Environmental NGOs and member of the water industry.

The agenda will follow shortly. 

Numbers are limited. However, if you would like to apply for a place, please email watersource@dwrcymru.com.
