FLOODEX 2016

The Association of Drainage Authorities (ADA) is hosting a new event for water level and flood risk management, FLOODEX 2016, at the Peterborough Arena on May 18 and 19. The event marks an upturn in national interest in the subject of water level and flood risk management with senior industry and government figures attending and speaking, says Innes Thomson, ADA Chief Executive. These seminar sessions run alongside trade stands featuring engineering, sustainable urban drainage, watercourse maintenance, plant machinery, pumping equipment and property protection products, and the Environment Agency.

Organisers say that this winter’s flooding has drawn attention to the need for integrated solutions that ADA and its members advocate, working cooperatively with each other, communities and land managers to deliver Total Catchment Management from source to sea.

FLOODEX 2016 provides an opportunity to explore these themes in more detail with both a varied assembly of exhibitors and seminars of speakers from local authorities, consultants, internal drainage boards, water companies, engineers, manufacturers, the Environment Agency and Defra over the two days.

Speaking ahead of the event ADA’s Chairman, Henry Cator said: “The challenges resulting from our changing weather patterns have the ability to test even our most robust systems. Resilience is going to play an increasingly important part in how we work in partnership with others to manage and defend our lowland environment. I look forward to talking to visitors, exhibitors and speakers at Floodex about new and innovative solutions to these problems.”

FLOODEX 2016 is free to attend.
