Novel water sensor research, a water industry instrument apprentice competition, and a topical cross sector SWIG event will all be present at WWEM this year on 2-3 November, Telford International Centre.

The Sensors for Water Interest Group is excited to be running 3 different engaging activities at WWEM this year! We will be helping Early Career Researchers showcase their novel water sensor research to industry through our poster competition – come and visit the poster display and listen to the 3 finalists presenting their research. We will be recognising the value of apprentices in the water industry by holding a fun but challenging apprentice competition to put teams through their paces! During the 2nd November at WWEM, pairs of apprentices will solve different challenging scenarios with advice from suppliers at WWEM, undertake some practical exercises and then end the day with a quickfire 20 questions quiz! The winners of the poster competition and apprentice competition will be announced at the WWEM gala dinner on 2nd November.

We will also be holding an engaging and topical SWIG event at WWEM, which will appeal to a different industries undertaking water monitoring. One of the UK Government’s key tasks in the 2015 National Security Strategy is to improve the resilience of the infrastructure most critical to keeping the country running against attack, natural damage or destruction. Monitoring and control systems are fundamental to the operation of the water utilities and have, in recent years, become increasingly important in the protection of water industry assets against the effects of disruptive events. Data from on-line instrumentation is increasingly becoming fundamental for managing risk, maximising efficiency and providing the wider business with reliable and trusted information. We will be holding two conference sessions regarding the resilience of networks and use of sensors in challenging applications respectively. These sessions will be of interest to any industry wishing to improve resilience to flooding and other disruptive events; and using water sensors in difficult situations. Morning presentations will cover resilience modelling, integrated camera technology and an online underground structure monitor. Afternoon presentations will cover parallel sensor technologies used across sectors, solving difficult monitoring problems and a case study of chlorine monitoring in the power industry. The full programme and registration form is available on the WWEM website: https://ilmt.co/PL/3m4Q

The Sensors for Water Interest Group (SWIG) is a not for profit, knowledge-exchange and networking group with a diverse UK-wide membership including water companies, consultancies, academics, sensor manufacturers and distributors and individuals. We hold cost effective events covering all aspects of water sensing. www.swig.org.uk
