Our Technical Director Dr Ian Dennis will be leading a discussion on the benefits of this new guidance for river restoration practitioners across the UK.

This two-day national event is the 19th Annual Network Conference run by the River Restoration Centre, and looks to be the most successful yet, with over 330 delegates registered from across the UK.

Under the title “Contaminated sediment: assessing risks in UK rivers”, Ian will discuss the key messages from this guide for anyone working in water environments where contaminated sediments are likely to be a risk. He will explain how the CIRIA guide can be used to assess and manage this risk to support a healthy river environment.

Speaking of the conference, Ian said: “We are pleased to be sponsoring this annual event, as we have done for many years, and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to raise awareness of this new piece of national guidance for river restoration practitioners working in sites where contaminated sediment may be an issue.”

The workshop will be held at the EMCC in Nottingham on the 24th and 25th April 2018. If you would like to know more about this guidance, or about our river restoration work more generally, please contact Ian on ian.dennis@rhdhv.com or come visit our Royal HaskoningDHV stand in Nottingham.
