This event, being held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London on Monday 1st October from 6-8pm, will cover the critical role of the reservoir, the context of the 50 year review, its delivery and outcomes. Given his intimate knowledge of the monitoring work carried out at Clywedog, Sheridan will discuss the recommendations for the monitoring system design at this site, implementation of those recommendations, the challenges encountered in this unique environment as well as the remote monitoring and data acquisition solutions being successfully delivered. You can read more about our monitoring work at Clywedog here.

Sheridan comments: “Thanks to technological innovation, many new methods and techniques are available for monitoring dams and reservoirs, some of which are being used at Clywedog. When I was offered the chance to share my knowledge of this project, speaking alongside other respected professionals from Severn Trent Water, Hafren Dyfyrdwy, Mott MacDonald and Atkins at the prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers, I jumped at the opportunity. I’m incredibly passionate about this project and look forward to sharing my experience with delegates in October.”
