Future Water in 2021


In December Future Water issued an end of year message, reflecting on 2020. We talked about how we have adapted as an organisation, the events we have held virtually, plus the online sessions we ran to support members and others working in the sector. We also looked ahead to the coming year, setting out some of our plans, as far as we could given the constantly changing conditions and constraints.

2021 was always going to be a challenging year and having a strong organisation like Future Water at the heart of the sector to support you, challenge regulators, engage with water companies and represent your interests is perhaps more crucial than ever as we start this new year.

Like everyone working in the water industry, Future Water continues to adapt as the rules and conditions change and remains a constant source of support and resources during in these strange and challenging times. Meetings with water companies will continue, as will the Water Dragons competition, online industry sessions and much more.

Highlights


Virtual Networks Group – Wednesday 20 January

Developed out of Future Water Networks 2020, the challenge being addressed is to create a virtual place where water company network managers and operators, and the supply chain, can share knowledge and/or collaborate on innovations and emerging products and services aimed at specific areas (such as managing leakage, meeting leakage targets, making sewers smarter) for mutual benefit.
