Water professionals gather for Northern Ireland conference

Water professionals will gather at a conference in Northern Ireland next month on Wednesday 16 March 2011.

Delegates at Water NI 2011 will consider the current state of the water industry following the drop in water supply at the end of 2010.

The theme of the conference is "Sustainable Water" and will examine the economic, environmental, and social aspects of how this impacts Northern Ireland.

Conor Murphy MP, minister for regional development, will address the conference and representatives from water regulation, Northern Ireland Water and NI Environment Agency will give delegates the opportunity to hear the latest developments in policy and strategy.

Key topics will include financial constraints, sustainability in the water sector and plans for the PC13 framework. A panel discussion with questions from the floor will be included in both the morning and afternoon sessions.

The conference is produced by Water & Wastewater Treatment (WWT) magazine, the leading industry magazine for water and wastewater professionals.

Editor, Natasha Wiseman, said: "Northern Ireland faces challenges on many fronts and Water NI 2011 is the only event in the water calendar bringing together key decision makers at this critical time.

"Given the strength of the programme, I would urge anyone with an interest in the region to make the trip. Delegates should gain a much deeper understanding of the current picture and future outlook."
