Dominica Andrews, conference content manager at Faversham House, says, "UK water utilities are facing conflicting pressures of trying to maintain an affordable service, attract investment and deliver on environmental responsibilities. Collaboration, innovation and integrated solutions are essential to move forward. The Environmental Water Management Conference has been developed to break down barriers and help stakeholders move towards an integrated approach to land management and multi-functional solutions."
Environment Agency project manager, Rachel Kelly, said: "Our previous design involving high walls is no longer possible as the ground conditions in the area were far worse than anticipated."
"We thank him for the good work he has done during his term as Environment Secretary and we look forward to working equally constructively with the new Secretary of State."
"We are delighted to help demonstrate that these upstream solutions can make a difference to flood risk. We are aiming for a double whammy: to hold water in the landscape where it can improve habitat for wildlife, while at the same time alleviating flooding to homes in the Stroud Valleys."
