The UK Rainwater Management Association brings together the interests of manufacturers, academics and others concerned with the management of surface water in ways that help to ensure that future flood and drought risks are minimised. Of particular concern to the Association and its members, is the UK tendency to manage the various aspects of surface water, such quantities, quality, environmental impact and amenity value, in separate organisational “silos”, rather than through the taking of an integrated approach. The UKRMA is therefore particularly pleased to support the WWT Sustainable Water Conference which helps to redress this significant weakness.
