Reading’s water supply in a Changing Climate

Michael Bright and Chris Beales – Friday 4th November 2016

“We live in a water stressed area. Learn about the impact of climate change on our water supplies with wetter winters and drier summers, where our drinking water comes from and what we can do to be more efficient in our water use.”

Chris Beales is a hydrologist working for the Environment Agency. He will talk about the current pressures on our local river system, and how change change is predicted to affect our rivers in the future.

Michael Bright is a water industry consultant. He will talk about how Thames Water supply water to our homes in Reading. He will discuss some of the challenges and what we can do as individuals to reduce pressure on our water resources.

We look forward to welcoming you to this, the fourth of our Autumn series of talks. It will be a lively and interesting discussion.
