  • North West Transitional and Coastal Waters Workshop


    River Basin Management Planning - 2015-2021
    North West Transitional and Coastal Waters Workshop

    Lancaster University, Environment Centre, LA1 4YQ

    Hosted in cooperation with the Environment Agency. 


    A key issue in the north west is high/increasing levels of phytoplankton and dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) in the transitional and coastal waters that enter the Irish Sea.  As part of the consultation on the draft River Basin Management Plan (RBMP) the Environment Agency is holding this workshop with three main aims:

    • Present the issues with Phytoplankton and DIN reported in the draft RBMP to external and interested partners.
    • Discuss the issues with a wide variety of individuals and groups, to help better understand what might be driving nutrient inputs and cycling and what the consequences, if any, might be.
    • Seek views and suggestions on potential measures and actions for the 2015-2021 RBMP and in the longer term.

    Do you have an interest in these waters? Do you have knowledge or information that would help our investigations? Are there opportunities for joint working in this area? If so then we would like to hear from you.


    10.00   Arrival / Registration
    10.30   Environment Agency presentations on the DIN problem and existing understanding
    12.15   Lunch break (lunch will be provided) 
    13.00   Workshop sessions and group feedback
    14.45   Summary and next steps
    15.00   Close

    This event is open to CIWEM members and non-members with a relevant interest.  Numbers are limited to 60 places on a 'first come first served' basis.  Please confirm your attendance by registering using the booking web site.

  • Resilience of optimised wastewater treatment plant control strategies


    Reliability, robustness and resilience of optimised wastewater treatment plant control strategies

    The event will discuss how wastewater treatment plants can be controlled to optimise and improve performance. The challenge is that this is typically based on predicted future conditions. If these predictions prove to be inaccurate (for example, due to global warming or population increase, or shorter term problems such as equipment failure), then the system may perform more poorly than expected. In this presentation, the effects of future uncertainties are explored using measures of robustness and resilience, whilst reliability provides a measure of performance under expected conditions.

    Speaker:    - Dr Christine Sweetapple Associate Research Fellow Exeter University               

    Date: 28th January 2015                  

    Time: 5.30pm arrive for 6pm start    

    Location:   Room 102, Harrison Building, North Park Road, Exeter University, EX4 4QF

  • Evening Meeting: Developing the Environmental and Social Master Plan for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

    18:00 (17:30 Refreshments)
    Approx 20:00

    Location: Southampton University

    Speakers: Paul Hillman, Bram Miller and Greg Irvine from Ramboll UK

    This year, the Branch's international paper focuses on Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. The Jeddah study was fascinating and included issues of social and environmental health, infrastructure development (e.g. the need for and impacts of major flood channels), disaster management at the municipal level, the challenge of developing more sustainable solutions whilst understanding the impacts of rapid population growth through development, with the added pressure of the influx of millions during the Hajj, Jeddah being the gateway to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
