Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre (T2.09),
Trevithick, Cardiff University
ICE Cymru (supported by CIWEM Welsh Branch) would like to
invite you to attend an evening presentation on Tuesday
13th January 2015 on Greener Grangetown.
Jeremy Jones of Dŵr Cymru Welsh will talk about retrofitting a
variety of surface water management techniques, aimed at reducing
the amount of surface water entering the combined sewer system in
the Grangetown area whilst also enhancing local amenities.
The City of Cardiff Council, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural
Resources Wales are investing £2 million in Greener Grangetown, an
innovative scheme to better manage rainwater in the community.
Using the latest techniques, this scheme will catch, clean and
divert rainwater directly into the River Taff instead of pumping it
over 6 miles through the Vale of Glamorgan to the sea. It will help
to make Grangetown a greener, cleaner place to live.
Greener Grangetown is currently in the design stage and
construction of the first phase of this exciting initiative will
begin in 2015.
Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non
members. Light refreshments will be available from
5.30pm. For further details please contact: Felicity

Examining the Environmental and Hydrogeological Impacts of Shale Gas Exploration and Production
Brownfield Briefing Event
The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, 45 Prescot Street,
London, E1 8GP
The UK Government is placing increasing emphasis on the potential
role of shale gas in meeting future energy needs. A lot of the
public debate around the viability of shale gas exploration
concerns the environmental impacts, with reports from the US
claiming that contamination of drinking water has occurred as a
result of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking").
The fast-approaching deadline for achieving water resource,
quality and protection targets as part of the Water Framework and
Groundwater Daughter Directives means that fracking for shale gas
exploration, and the resulting impacts, is a growing concern for
many professionals involved in groundwater and environmental
This new and industry-researched conference will bring key
industry players together to explore the Environmental &
Hydrogeological Impacts of Shale Gas Exploration & Production
and strategies for managing the associated risks.
