As the UK’s leading independent abstraction licensing and water management specialists, Envireau Water is heavily involved with supporting organisations in the quarrying industry to navigate the updated abstraction licensing regulations.

This month, nationally recognised expert in water management, James Dodds, delivered an Institute of Quarrying (IQ) webinar during which he reviewed the transitional arrangements and new requirements for abstraction licensing which came into effect on 1st January 2018. During his presentation he examined what has been learned so far this year, and focused on what needs to be done NOW to ensure deadlines are hit.

James has been actively involved in the minerals sector within the UK for 20 years and has been an IQ member since 1994. He has been intimately involved with the development and implementation of the New Authorisations process both directly with the Environment Agency, with the Mineral Products Association and with individual operators. He presented the first IQ Academy lecture on this subject back in January.

The Institute of Quarrying received highly positive feedback from those who watched the webinar – in particular attendees praised the “clear and concise” nature of the presentation. One attendee commented: “James Dodds was brilliant – he demonstrated excellent understanding of the topic and explained things very simply and so was very easy to understand.”

The webinar is now available and free to access in the Envireau Knowledge section of our website. We have also produced a Guide to New Authorisations – Quarry Dewatering.

If you need support with your quarry dewatering New Authorisations, we suggest that you should contact us for a free, no obligation conversation. It is far more difficult and expensive to sort out licensing problems at the end of the process, than it is if the process is started and presented in the right way at the beginning.
