JBA demonstrates ‘River Restoration in Practice’ at the 2019 RRC Annual conference

We’re proud to be one of the sponsors of the 2019 River Restoration Centre (RRC) Annual Network Conference and River Prize. With this year’s theme of ‘River Restoration in Practice’, it is looking like it will be one of the most successful yet, with over 360 delegates and 24 sponsors booked to attend.

We believe in the benefits that a whole systems approach can bring to providing sustainable solutions for catchment and river management challenges, both now and in the future.

As an industry leader with a multi-disciplinary team of specialists, we are giving four presentations over the two-day event:

Day Time Session Title Speaker
Tuesday 2:30 pm Session 2 Investigating channel sensitivity to morphological changes and impact on future flooding Natasha Todd-Burley and Rebecca Ing
Tuesday  3:40 pm Session 3 River Irwell: small streams, big WFD gains Kim Jennings
