UCL Lunch Hour Lecture

Wet dreams: making urban water systems sustainable. Dr Sarah Bell (UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Eng)

Safe and reliable water systems are essential for good public health and modern urban life. Current systems of water provision and levels of water consumption in developed countries are unsustainable. Population growth, urban development and climate change are placing pressure on water resources and increasing the risk of flooding. Addressing these challenges will require radical changes in how water is sourced, treated, distributed and used in cities and homes. This lecture will outline new approaches to understanding water in cities, highlighting the importance of the relationship between technology and society in achieving sustainability.
