Congratulations to Albion Water’s STREAM engineering student Sean Tyrrell based at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, who has won an award for the best academic research poster at a recent environmental conference.
Albion Water supports a STREAM research student at the industrial doctorate centre for the water industry. Each STREAM student carries out a 4 year research project with Albion Water’s student Sean focusing on soil-based tertiary treatment systems. Sean has experimental plots situated at Albion Water’s waste water treatment works at Knowle.
Each year the Environment Doctorate Training Centre holds a conference for its students to showcase their work. Two awards are given each year, one for the best presentation and the other for the best academic research poster. Attached is Sean’s poster which demonstrates the environmental benefits of microtopographic enhancement of soil-based wastewater treatment systems.
The Environment Doctoral Training Centre provides a focal point for all students involved in environmentally-related research at Cranfield. It aims to encourage an effective and vibrant research culture, founded upon the diversity of activities and knowledge relating to the sector which characterise our research portfolio.
December Deluge – It has now been confirmed that the unfortunate residents of Knowle, Fareham and surrounding villages received rainfall totals twice the level of the long range average for the area leading up to and during the Christmas holidays.
Good news for topping up the groundwater but less so when considered on the back of a summer and autumn wash-out and consequential local flooding incidents. The dry start to 2013 (just 0.4mm of rainfall in the first week of January) is the cause of great relief to residents, land owners and farmers alike.
Albion Water’s Dr Jerry Bryan contributed a thought provoking article entitled ‘Streams of Improvement: Innovation and Technology’ to a recent Westminster Sustainable Business Forum report launched by Lord Smith (Chairman of the Environment Agency). The publication, titled Sustainable Solutions: Raising the water mark, consists of a collection of essays from 10 experts across the water sector. Gavin Shuker MP, Shadow Minister for Water chaired the event, at which both Lord Smith and Mary Creagh MP, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment spoke. Speaking at the launch, Lord Smith said, “this is an incredibly useful report, because it takes as its fundamental starting point, the fact that water is – a very precious and finite resource.”
The report contains essays and policy recommendations from organisations including Albion Water, Arup, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, CIWEM, the Committee on Climate Change, the EU Commission, RSPB and WWF. Each essay covers a different area of the water supply chain, from abstraction and catchment management to metering and innovation.

Albion Water prepares to adopt private sewers.
From 1 October 2011, water and sewerage companies in England and Wales will become responsible for private sewers, which are currently the responsibility of property owners.
This is good news as it means the ownership and maintenance of private sewers and lateral drains will be transferred to us, bringing peace of mind and clarity to you regarding ownership.
Not all private pipes are included. Property owners will remain responsible for the sections of pipe on their land between the property / building and the transferred private sewer or lateral drain.
To help you understand how the change in the law will affect you we will be sending a letter and leaflet to every customer. These will provide further details and a guide to the transfer process.
