Dr Dinah Hillier
Company: Thames Water
Job title: Catchment control manager
Dinah has been involved in catchment protection initiatives within Thames Water for more than two decades. Her PhD on the analytical chemistry of moorland waters provided a route into her first job at Thames Water; developing analytical methods to detect pesticides at concentrations well below the drinking water standard of 0.1 mg/l. Dinah’s current role is focused on the use of voluntary approaches to meet regulatory requirements for pesticides in water. In this capacity she represents Water UK on the Voluntary Initiative Project, the Pesticides Forum and the Network Rail Agreement, the latter being one of the longest running and most successful catchment management projects in this country.
