    This event will help promote greater understanding of Cardiff University's research activities, and provide practitioners with access to cutting-edge research, which should help them in their day-to-day jobs. By developing closer working relationships between academic and industry practitioners will be able to highlight issues of emerging concern and help direct the direction of key research strands going forward. 

    All the speakers are PhD students and research assistants within Cardiff Univeristy's Hydro-environmental Research Centre, the Director of which is Professor Roger Falconer.  Topics covered by the Centre are numerous and varied, and include the proposed Severn Barrage, faecal coliforms in the coastal environment and hydrodynamic modelling of estuarine and coastal waters.

    Venue: Cardiff University, Engineering Building, MAIN lecture Theatre

    CIWEM Welsh branch  would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on 'From Sewer to Sand' How sustainable is ever-increasing marine protection?.

    With the completion in 2015 of the implementation of both the Water Framework Directive (the remit of which extends to one nautical mile offshore) and the revised Bathing Water Directive, and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive requiring a programme of measures to be established by 2016 for achieving good environmental status, over the next few years the coastal and marine environment will be under greater scrutiny than ever before.

    This presentation will consider the implications for both the UK, the South West of England and Wales, with specific reference to catchment management, marine litter, bathing water quality and combined sewer overflows, and attempts to answer the question: How sustainable is ever-increasing marine protection?

    Refreshments will be served from 5.30 pm.  The presentation will start at 6pm and will be followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

    Please contact Tracey Dunford at welsh@ciwem.org for further information.  Note this presentation will be followed by the Welsh branch AGM
