3 weeks today until the 2017 Borehole Users Conference!
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 thrilled that we will be joined by Mark Morton of Yorkshire Water, who will be presenting a case study in the afternoon session of the conference.
Mark is a Senior Hydrogeologist at Yorkshire Water. He has been a professional hydrogeologist for 27 years (!) and has worked as both a resource hydrogeologist and contaminant hydrogeologist dealing with regulation of abstraction licences, landfills, contaminated land and environmental impact at a local and regional scale. Mark has also worked nationally developing and writing policy for groundwater management and protection and interfacing with government. More recently he has been managing the public water supply groundwater assets at Yorkshire Water. Mark ensures the assets are monitored, assessed, invested in and problems solved as they arise. Yorkshire Water also works with a wide range of third parties to protect and manage the catchments for their sources.
This event 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.
