Event The 9th Annual UK Groundwater Forum Conference: "Groundwater resources planning: the next 25 years"

The 9th Annual UK Groundwater Forum Conference will be held on 13 May 2008 at the Natural History Museum, London. The title of the meeting is ‘Groundwater resources planning: the next 25 years’.

Through Water Resource Management Plans water companies show how in the long term they intend to provide sufficient drinking water while protecting the environment. Development is underway of the latest versions of these Plans due for publication in 2009 which will cover a 25-year period starting in 2010. In April 2008 these plans will be put out for public consultation.

The UK Groundwater Forum is holding a one-day conference to allow discussion of issues arising from these draft Plans. The meeting will focus on groundwater aspects of the Plans. It will give the water companies an opportunity to share approaches in addressing the challenges that have arisen in developing their Plans. It will also give the wider groundwater community the opportunity to get a better understanding of the difficulties the water industry is facing.
