The sun keeps shining as we finish the first half of the year. It’s been another interesting month here at Artesia consulting, let’s take a look at what we have been doing…
Most water companies have received their consultation response for WRMP19. Therefore, Artesia has been busy supporting companies with their revised draft WRMPs, who have 26 weeks to consult on their draft plan and produce a statement of response. The plans will then be reviewed by regulators and government so we know how important our work is to our clients.
It has been great to see the traction our report for OFWAT (long-term potential for deep reductions in household #water consumption) has made in the water industry and it continues as the technical annexes were published – you can find them here (pages 2&3): https://www.ofwat.gov.uk/publications/3/
Artesia are proud to be delivering the second Artesia-Decision Lab hAQUAthon on 27th & 28th Nov 2018, with many other water companies in advanced discussions including Yorkshire Water who have confirmed as a partner. hAQUAthon brings together a range of organisations throughout the Water industry to collaborate with data science and analytic experts to drive innovation and change in the water industry.

“All it takes is a drop to drive a wave of change”.
Household Consumption Forecasting
Our work continues on the exciting development of a new model for household consumption forecasting to enable more efficient planning and water management.
As Chair of the CIWEM Water Resources Panel, Rob Lawson gave evidence in the inquiry into the regulation of the water industry in the House of Commons on 20th June. The EFRA committee addressed water resources, efficiency and infrastructure. It was great to see the support for metering, PCC targets, improved water labelling and better products.
