How to Solve the UK’s Water Crisis ft. Dr Peter Cruddas
From last summer’s hosepipe bans to burst pipes in winter and seasonal flooding, the UK’s water systems are far from predictable in the face of climate change and development. So what can research do to solve a growing crisis in the supply and management of water here?
Dr Peter Cruddas is a Senior Lecturer in Water Environmental Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. In this episode of Life Solved he discusses our aged infrastructure and what needs to be done in the face of droughts, drawing upon his past work in Africa and research into the water cycle and its ecology.
From technology to behavioural change, forecasting and modelling – find out what we can all do to safeguard a resilient and reliable water system for the future.
