Webinar: Water availability and drought: what can the drinking water companies do in the long term?

Event details

Date: Tuesday, 12 April 2022
Time: 13.00 – 14.00
Online on Teams

In order to complete the water transition that water companies, water authorities and nature organisations wish to see, the drinking water sector needs a knowledge base about how to balance water supply and demand better. The underlying principle here is that, in line with the recommendations of the policy consultation platform on drought, water management in rural areas must undergo fundamental change. In this study, we aim to develop, from a water system perspective, the knowledge, methods and building blocks needed to complete the water transition, while taking into account the interests of drinking water that it involves.

Marjolein van Huijgevoort (KWR) will present an overview of methods to visualise water sources, needs and flows in regional water systems. Visual water system overviews can play a valuable role in getting to grips with complex water systems and communicating about them.

Stef Koop (KWR) takes us through ways of effectively introducing options that will allow household customers and large industries to save water. He will look at a range of options such as behavioural engineering, legal interventions, economic incentives and technical applications.

This study was funded by the Sector Research programme (BTO) of the Dutch and Flemish Drinking Water Companies. It has been organised on the basis of the “Resources and Environment” and “Client” theme groups. This webinar is open only to employees of drinking water companies and laboratories.
