Water UK has initiated work with the Water and Wastewater Resilience Action Group (WWRAG), which will consider best practice and leading thought on resilience across the water sector. The group will provide clear guidance on where it considers parts of the sector have achieved best practice, and where innovation and thought leadership has been lacking. WWRAG has been set up following a recommendation from Ofwat’s independent Resilience Task and Finish Group. It will take advice from as wide a range of interested parties as possible, and will actively seek input from thought leaders within the water sector and from outside.

The Group has met for the first time, and has already started projects on:

  • land management post-CAP,
  • resilience research
  • qualitative metrics for resilience in the water industry

Outputs of the group will recommend actions and will occur regularly throughout the year. The Group’s independent Chair, Professor Tim Broyd, said: “I am delighted to be working on this critical subject. Resilience is a real and current issue for the services customers rely on and I am looking forward to making strong progress with the group.”

Water UK’s Director of Environment, Sarah Mukherjee, said: “We are delighted that Professor Broyd has agreed to chair this Group, and also delighted that it has attracted such a high-calibre and energetic membership. Click here to read more.
