BHS meeting

Celebrating hydrometry

22 January 2019

Type: National Meeting

This joint CIWEM-BHS national meeting (part of an ongoing series of meetings designed to link researchers, policy makers and practitioners) will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the value that hydrometry provides for society, the environment and the economy. It will feature presentations and debate from those responsible for the collection and management of hydrometric data, through to those who use it in studies or in planning, managing and regulating the water environment. 

The meeting will be held at the Instituion of Civil Engineers, London SW1P 3AA and bring together academics, researchers, consultants, hydrologists, environmental managers, policymakers, regulators and other stakeholders. More details to follow soon.
