Join our webinar:
Removal of Abstraction Licence Exemptions (“New Authorisations”):
2018 and beyond
Thursday 18 January 2018 11.00am-12.00pm (UK time).
The latest webinar in our ‘Cradle to Grave’ series, is brought to you by Duncan Wardrop, Chairman of the MPA Water Group & Principal at Wardrop Minerals Management Limited, together with Barnaby Harding, Technical Director at ESI, now part of Stantec. They will be discussing the fact that from 1st January 2018 currently exempt abstractions for quarry dewatering, abstractions in geographically exempt areas, abstractions operated by public bodies and statutory undertakers, and irrigation, will be required to start applying for the relevant licences to permit these abstractions. Sites currently operating under the exemption will have a 2-year transitional period to apply for licenses. The Environment Agency / Natural Resources Wales then have a 3-year period to determine applications.
This webinar will focus on the critical information you need to consider and answer your queries. The implications for the minerals industry are significant, with the ability to operate and manage water in existing and future quarries being affected.
Who should sign up?
This webinar is relevant to all of those within the minerals industry, from operational to strategic level, for whom water management in quarries is a consideration.
