Storm Overflows webinar
With the publication of the UK’s first Storm Overflow Discharge Reduction Plan, join us for a webinar looking at some of the challenges in the sector
Tackling storm overflows in England has become a growing priority.
It has commanded significant public attention and, partly in response, the government has committed to a step change on action to protect both public health and the environment from storm overflow discharges.
Designed to coincide with the publication of the UK’s first Storm Overflow Discharge Reduction Plan, join us for an interactive and informative webinar to look at some of the challenges faced by the sector, including:
- The Environment Act 2021 – what do the storm overflow provisions actually mean for water undertakers?
- But what about now – an incident/governance toolkit in the event of permit non-compliance
- The Office for Environmental Protection – an investigation into the government’s response to storm overflows
If possible, we will also take a first look at the UK’s new Storm Overflow Discharge Reduction Plan.
