Water Sector Capital Investment and Infrastructure Plans; Sponsored by Dalcour Maclaren

Friday, 17th September 2021 0945hrs – 1130hrs

Water companies, on average, invest around £8bn a year in improving water security, developing infrastructure, and innovating facilities to maintain that nation’s water supply.

This webinar will explore the way in which water companies are innovating their infrastructure, methods, and technology, from flood prevention to new environmentally friendly capital programmes. We will be joined by some of the key decision makers from across the water sector to share insight into ongoing and future projects and discuss new opportunities as millions of new homes and communities are developed across the UK.

Speakers for this event include:

Sam Catling,
Associate Director, Water Sector Lead
Angela MacOscar,
Head of Innovation
Colin Green,
Director of Commercial and Regulatory Frameworks
Rebecca Frost,
Head of Future Water Services
