This year’s Borehole Users Conference (BHUC) in November will feature an afternoon session specifically for EHOs working in water quality. Based on discussions with EHOs and Public Health England, Envireau Water has included a dedicated session at #BHUC2019 specifically for this sector.
The 2018 amendment to the Private Water Supplies Regulations continues to cause problems, increasing the burden on regulators with respect to sampling and risk assessment. Feedback from the sector shows there are three main themes causing problems:
• What happens underground – geology and hydrogeology
• Water treatment systems – what they are and how they work
• Risk assessments – what is important and how to keep them sensible
The session aims to provide clarification and valuable information around these issues for anyone working in water quality. The conference provides a full day of high-quality CPD.
Paul Avis, Senior Technical Officer at Eden District Council on the value of the BHUC to people working in the sector:
Officers from Eden Council have attended the BHUC for a number of years. The presentations are always of the highest calibre, being informative and relevant to the implementation of Drinking Water Legislation. The speakers are highly experienced and offer a ‘hands on’ approach to the many subjects covered from borehole Construction, abstraction and licencing, through to regulation of private and bottled water.
This conference has grown in stature year on year and includes a significant opportunity for attendees to meet and discuss the latest equipment available in water treatment with the many trade stands.
An extremely useful conference which I would recommend to anybody involved in water quality.
If you work in environmental health or water quality and would find this session useful, get your ticket for our #BHUC2019 here. Prices have been frozen at 2018 rates.
