Where Bristol’s Water Comes From

Have you ever wondered where our water come from and how does it reach us

Talks & debates

The talk will be of interest if you have ever wondered:

– Where does our water come from and how does it reach us?

– Who uses it, how much, and how do we compare with the rest of the world?

– What are the problems that have been solved and what are the problems for the future?

ICE and CIWEM members and non-members are welcome to attend. We would especially welcome anyone who would like to learn more about the engineering sector in general or perhaps maybe considering a future career in engineering, the water industry and the environment!

February’s talk by Anne-Marie Tuck, will continue the water sector theme, with an overview of the recent Durdham Down Combined Main project.
