Public Lecture: Testing the Water’: Innovation and the management of Britain’s most precious resource

  • Boutflour Hall Royal Agricultural University Stroud Road, Cirencester GL7 6JS (map)

 Cirencester Science and Technology Society public lecture given by Prof. Carolyn Roberts, Gresham College, London and Water and Environment Consultant.

The UK seems either regularly to be flooded, or experiencing economically-damaging droughts, and yet everyone complains that water bills are exorbitant whilst Local Authorities and the Environment Agency are incompetent.

What’s the basis of the problem, and can technological innovation make our water systems more robust in the face of future climate uncertainty?

All welcome.
