The 2017 Borehole Users Conference is taking place on the 5th October in Loughborough.
The overall theme this year is sustainability. We will be talking about longevity of sources through good design and management, data collection and how it’s used as well as practical instruction on water level measurement, logging and flow measurement. With presentations from the Environment Agency, Siemens, and real abstractors there is a massive amount that will be learned.
We are pleased that we will be joined by Andrew Francis from the Elveden Estate, who will be presenting an abstractor case study in the afternoon session of the conference.
Andrew is a first generation farmer and Senior Farm Manager at the Elveden Estate. Andrew is directly responsible for all elements of farming on the 22,500 acre estate on the Norfolk Suffolk Border plus 1,700 hectares of external farming. Andrew manages a team of 40 workers working together with them to look at long term approaches to land and water management, food production and environmental sustainability. Being a LEAD Demonstration Farm, McDonalds Flagship Farm and the current host of AHDB SPoT Farm, Andrew welcomes various groups of people to the Estate throughout the year.
The Borehole Users Conference is a fantastic opportunity for those that are involved in the operation and maintenance of sources and boreholes, to learn what is happening in their borehole, what information to collect and why it is useful. In addition, there is a trade exhibition with a wide range of equipment and service providers specific to the water well industry.
