Mark Driver, Managing Director of CAW,
"The WWT Ireland conference is a great platform to bring the Irish Water industry together to discuss the challenges and opportunities that we are currently faced with. We were privileged to have our colleague Jim Foster from our sister company Anglian Water who delivered an insight into the innovative methods AW have developed to treat WTW in the eastern counties of England. Dr Foster’s presentation was indeed very topical as it highlighted the raw water quality treatability challenges which Anglian Water have and continue to be presented with, many of these raw water quality challenges are very similar to those Irish Water is now facing. There was a particular interest in Dr Fosters presentation on the issues associated with the levels of pesticides now present in raw waters and the seasonal variations in contamination levels, MCPA was singled out by one member of the audience for particular discussion.
