  • WFD investigations in Wales


    Speaker: Natural Resources Wales, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and B&V

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, Cardiff University

    Institute of Water (supported by CIWEM Welsh Branch) would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on "Water Framework Directive Investigation Programme - A Collaborative Approach"

    The catchment approach is becoming established as the most suitable way to deliver sustainable water management across sectors and make recommendations for water quality improvements that achieve wider outcomes than traditional 'end of pipe' solutions.

    Natural Resources Wales, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Black & Veatch will jointly present on the collaborative approach used during AMP5 Water Framework Directive Investigations (Tranche 2), which covered 56 water body catchments across Wales. These used a catchment-scale approach to determine the impacts of Welsh Water's waste water assets on nutrient levels in rivers and their contribution to failures of Water Framework Directive targets.  The investigations provided proportionate and robust levels of evidence to enable Welsh Water to target future asset investments, and for Natural Resources Wales to include relevant recommendations for River Basin Management Planning.

    The presentation will: -

    i) give an overview of what needs to be achieved for the Water Framework Directive and River Basin Management Plans,

    ii) explain how the investigation programme was set up to work in partnership to ensure the future investments and wider efforts are based on suitable evidence,

    iii) provide some examples of technical outcomes for the investigations.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members.  Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  Please contact:

  • The Environmental Law and Policy Implications of Brexit

    UKELA Conference, in association with the Society of Legal Scholars and Bristol University

    Time: 9.30am registration for 10am start

    Venue: Bristol University

    CPD: 5

    More Info

    With a referendum on EU membership due by the end of 2017, this conference considers what a 'No' vote might mean for UK environmental law and those affected by it. How might Brexit affect UK environmental policy, so much of which presently derives from Europe? What about our domestic legislation and other legal obligations? How can regulators and regulated industries prepare? Which obligations will continue for trade or international law reasons? How are agencies and organisations preparing?

    The programme features plenary sessions with presentations by legal academics, practitioners, policy experts and representatives from the European Commission and the Environment Agency. A key aim of the day is to map out the big challenges that Brexit poses for legislators, regulators, businesses and others affected by environment law, and to identify avenues for further research. Workshops will provide opportunities for delegates to share their thoughts on the most pressing issues and the next steps.

    The conference aims to draw together environmental law academics, legal practitioners, regulators and anyone else with an interest in this highly topical issue. It is organised jointly by the United Kingdom Environmental Law Association (UKELA), the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) and Bristol University.

    With grateful thanks to Bristol University for hosting and to Chris Willmore and UKELA's South West regional group for their assistance in drawing up the programme. Thank you also to Burges Salmon for their kind sponsorship of the Conference and to Bristol Green Capital 2015 for their support.
