The health, happiness and prosperity of any society are inextricably linked to its ability to protect its water resources and provide clean water for its citizens. Protecting groundwater and surface water resources, treating it to drinking water standards and assuring bathing water quality is a continuous challenge for high and low income countries. We work locally and globally to address the policy, implementation and technology challenges of providing safe water for all, forever. We are one of 5 UK universities providing a research and training programme for talented graduates in the Stream Industrial Doctorate Training Centre for the Water Sector. We have research collaborations with UK water companies and global partners everywhere in the world.
