NP037  Waste Water Issue Tracking Standards/Regulation
In order to position itself for the future, the water industry needs to obtain advance notice of issues likely to impact upon its business. This project undertaken by WRc provides the UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR) with a bimonthly "Watching

Brief" on developments in wastewater issues to enable the industry to respond quickly, authoritatively, responsibly and cost effectively to both new and potential issues. It also prevents duplication of research thus directing R&D expenditure in a more focused manner.

The watching brief includes International and in particular European developments such as:

  • Changes in European Union policy and legislation
  • Research including novel ways in which to improve operating efficiencies
  • Major events affecting public attitudes which may be used to influence the reaction to issues.
