At ILM's Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring (WWEM) event, George Heywood of Ovarro, Ronnie Bains of Seeq, Darren Steele of IT Vizion, and Sam Greene of Southern Water  spoke on the growing importance of data management for flow monitoring in the water sector from a variety of perspectives. After their talks, the speakers fielded questions from the audience and the moderator, Oliver Grievson, on topics as varied as the possibility of moving towards 1-minute frequency and how to combine the knowledge of specialists with automated data handling.
