About this event

Ben Shearer and Paul Scanlan of Yorkshire Water will showcase the £50m ICE award winning Scarborough Revised Bathing Water Scheme, designed to help the beaches of Britain's first tourist resort to reach the highest standards and allow them to be eligible for the coveted Blue Flag.

Marine impact modelling has helped minimise the construction work whilst maximising the benefits. By understanding the risks to the bathing water quality the solution targeted work in the most appropriate locations, including installing a dedicated storm ultraviolet light water disinfection system at the waste water treatment works.
