Waste and Water Webinars in July 2016

SWM member, Fit for the Future Network, are holding a number of webinars this month for their network members around waste and water.
On-site Waste Water Treatment Systems- 13 July- 2.00-3.00pm
What are the most effective and environmentally friendly ways to treat waste water on site? Two environmental organisations will present case studies covering sustainable on-site waste water treatment systems at remote and protected sites, from planning and installation to the challenges and successes. Case studies from the National Trust and Field Studies Council will be followed by questions and discussion. This will be particularly relevant to conservation organisations or those with sites in remote rural areas.
Sustainable water solutions- Visitor Facilities & Offices- 14 July- 1.30-2.30pm
How do you improve water efficiency in a heritage building, or install solutions in a new project? This webinar will cover the use of rain and grey water as well as water saving devices to lower usage and reduce costs. We’ll hear from two organisations about good practice – one focusing on rain water harvesting and efficiency measures in a new office building, and another on a visitor facility in a traditional building- followed by questions and discussion.
Deregulation of the water market- 20 July- 2.00-3.00pm
Network members will discuss and pool ideas around approaches to deregulation of the water market in 2017, with National Trust opening by giving an overview of their plans. The session will include what to expect from an account manager and what retailers can offer in terms of meters, data logging and water audits. We will also cover the issue of finding sustainable suppliers that meet an organisation’s ethos. A representative from OFWAT will be on hand to answer questions.
Water Base-lining and Monitoring- 21 July- 2.00-3.00pm
This webinar will cover the benefits and process of water base-lining and monitoring, including installing meter readings and the opportunities to save time and money. Case studies will cover how to go about starting to collect data, data logging, feeding data into an organisation’s central monitoring systems and effective analysis. Case studies from the Crown Estate and National Trust will be followed by questions and discussion.
