The launch

Drawing on the lessons learnt from two major water efficiency retrofit programmes (Tap into Savings and Save Water Swindon), as well as other projects included within the Waterwise Evidence Base, Waterwise, working with WWF, has developed a short guide for planning water efficiency retrofitting initiatives.

On Tuesday 25 September we held a dissemination event where we launched the short guide booklet and took a more detailed look at some of the elements covered within it. Many of the speakers were water company representatives with direct experience of the topics covered in the guide. The day was chaired by Jacob Tompkins, Managing Director of Waterwise.
