UK WATER INDUSTRY RESEARCH

My UKWIR

Sustainability research theme

Sustainability

UKWIR has collaborated closely with the Meteorological Office as well as the Environment Agency on the inputs into this programme area. This ensures climate change scenarios are provided in a format that the industry can easily assimilate. Research has looked into climate change impacts on the water company functions including the asset management planning process, the hydraulic design of sewerage systems and on river flows and groundwater recharge.

New areas being explored include, circular economy, natural capital and reducing carbon footprint.
