The 4th National WATER SUMMIT

Half Full: Our Water Future Policy, Management and Reform

Organised by iQuest, the 4th National Water Summit will take place on Thursday, 25th November 2010 at the Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin.

This event is being held at a pivotal time for the water sector in this country. Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, Mr. John Gormley TD announced earlier this year an increase in investment for replacing water mains across the country. Over the next three years, investment will increase five-fold to €300 million. This, coupled with other recent developments in the sector, have ensured a full, interesting and maybe even controversial agenda for this year’s summit.

The summit will look at the advent of domestic metering, industry reform, innovation and new technologies, conservation, legislation and priorities for investment. These are but a snapshot of the changes taking place in our water industry. There are many more - some exciting, some challenging, others even scary ..... and more still, all three!

The 4th National Water Summit, organised by iQuest, is an event of major interest to all stakeholders in Ireland’s water future. The summit includes an impressive speaker line-up, with visionary leaders, international and national experts - all professionally involved with water - who will deliver succinct presentations and case studies, allowing time at the end for an open forum to discuss the issues participants find most interesting and prevalent.
