Wastewater Flow Control

Wastewater flow is one of the key themes in the next Asset Management Period (AMP), as it features in the Environment Agency’s National Environment Programme (WINEP). This programme aims to monitor and control the flow that a site must achieve before going to storm, with storm tanks used only when absolutely necessary.


Water Industry Collaboration for Electric Van Trial

Highways England are currently funding an electric van trial across the UK: they have highlighted specific geographical areas of interest to assess the potential positive environmental impact of local companies changing to all electric vans.


Mick’s Insight

I’m lucky to have been to several really outstanding Z-Tech events and site visits since the last enewz, so thanks to all who have put up with me on site / accepted my bribe of buying the breakfasts.



When things are broken they need to be fixed fast. Engineers need to be deployed to site with the right IT equipment – laptop, software tools and leads to connect to the field controllers (PLCs) or site instrumentation. This enables them to find and fix the fault with no repeat visits or costly delays.

  • "The customer focus and flexibility of Z-Tech makes it easy for a water utility to deal with. When we have a large and complex programme to deliver, planning every detail can be a challenge. Working with Z-Tech means that we can maintain delivery, knowing that resources are available to pick up the loose ends."
