Chris Leake to present at the MPA

New Dewatering Authorisations: Hafren Water to deliver key information at Midlands Region MPA Event

Addressing the recent changes to dewatering regulation, Hafren Water Director Chris Leake will be presenting to the Midlands branch meeting of the Mineral Products Association (MPA) on the 25th January.

Focusing on the practical measures which operating companies will need to adopt in order to comply with the new regulations, Chris hopes that his presentation will be a clear and beneficial guide:

“If you are dewatering and were previously exempt from needing to have an abstraction licence under the Water Resources Act 1991, the law has now changed, meaning that from 1st January 2018, you may now need to apply for an abstraction licence. A new procedure for many, my presentation will set out the practicalities of this.”

Hosted by the MPA, the event will be held at the Swinfen Hall Hotel in Lichfield.
