Utility Connections

Future Water Association has taken a pro-active role in opening up dialogue across the water sector and regular discussions are held with water companies throughout the year at our Water Utility Engagement Meetings. These provide our members with direct, face to face access to decision makers within the water companies.

The meetings, which are held across the UK, cover a wide range of topics including training, innovation, procurement issues and capital investment programmes.

The minutes and other documentation from the meetings are available for all our members to access via the Member Portal.

In 2017 we held successful engagement meetings with Wessex Water, Northumbrian Water, Southern Water, Anglian Water, Dwr Cymru, Severn Trent, Bristol Water and Yorkshire Water.

We are currently working on our Engagement calendar for 2018 and in addition to last year’s successful programme we are also seeking meetings with a number of other Water & Sewerage & Water Only Companies, other key stakeholders in the sector and a number of key Tier 1 Contractors. Members will be notified of additional meetings and given the opportunity to attend as more dates are confirmed throughout the year.
