Infrastructure

A task force led by Tony Rachwal (independent, ex Thames Water) with Hans Jensen of UKWIR ran a workshop on infrastructure water needs. The report is available here: Water Infrastructure Innovation Workshop May 2012 Final Report (pdf)

The task force identified key areas for research and innovation – some of which are being addressed in EPSRC’s Assessing the Underworld programme and others through UKWIR/water utilities reviews and trials to manage water demand through smart metering and water reuse. A further workshop was run on Aquifer Storage and Recharge – see report here: Radical groundwater recharge workshop 4th Dec 2013 DRAFT REPORT (pdf)

This subject is being further explored both by the water and cities and water and farming task forces.
