Water companies join forces to tackle regional challenges

Anglia Water and Essex & Suffolk Water are to collaborate in a bid to solve a number of challenges currently facing the water industry, the region and society as a whole.

From 10-12 September, the companies will present Innovate East at Trinity Park Showground in Ipswich. The event – one of the biggest innovation events to take place in the region – will see utility experts, academics, engineers, scientists, commercial businesses, students and customers come together to develop solutions to challenges such as water scarcity, climate change, protecting the environment, delivering for customers and other major problems facing water companies and other large organisations.

Heidi Mottram, Chief Executive of Essex & Suffolk Water, said: “The pace of change is now huge, with new technologies arriving all the time and the expectations of our customers rising. Therefore, it is vital that as an industry we are working together to provide the best services we can.”
