Nicole McNab of Southern Water wins Best Paper at the CIWEM Annual Urban Drainage Group Conference
Last week, Nicole McNab – Strategic Communications and Partnership Delivery Lead in the Clean Rivers and Seas Task Force – presented at CIWEM’s Annual Urban Drainage Group Conference in Birmingham. The three-day conference brings the water industry together to share latest findings, projects, and ideas on tackling surface water.
Nicole shared case studies from the Task Force’s Pathfinder projects as well as Southern Water’s plans to implement green and hybrid solutions into communities to reduce storm overflows, rather than only investing in grey infrastructure. The presentation and subsequent panel session were so well received, Nicole won the ‘Best Paper’ award!
“Southern Water are industry-leading with our approach to storm overflows. Across the business, we have teams working tirelessly to enhance and protect the environment for the benefit of our customers and future generations. I’m very proud of the work Southern Water are doing to reduce overflows and we won’t be slowing down any time soon. These next 10 years will bring together cross-industry collaboration like never before; now is the time to grasp it.” – Nicole McNab, Strategic Communications and Partnership Delivery Lead, Clean Rivers and Seas Task Force
