This article states that water industry stakeholders in Great Britain have used a Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) conference to spell out what they want from the Floods and Water Bill. David Lane, Floods and Water Bill manager for the British Office of Water Services (Ofwat), said the regulator wanted to enhance its enforcement powers in the light of experience. Ofwat is planning a consultation on possible changes to the regulations for large infrastructure projects later in 2009.
