Join Sally Boddy PGDip BEng CEng MICE, regional engineer at the Canal & River Trust for an insight into the various assets which the Canal & River Trust manage. 

The Canal & River Trust has around 35,000 assets to manage, many of which have a significant heritage value. Most are out in the open, exposed to the elements, and all need maintenance to ensure they carry on working properly. 

The challenge is to make sure they work on the right thing at the right time, so that people all over the county have the best experience possible on safe and reliable waterways.

Few assets on the canals and rivers are the same and the diversity of the navigation network encounters all sorts of challenges created by the weather, time and usage. There are almost 20 million visits a year from boaters, cyclists, walkers, anglers and families. The waterways require careful and consistent management.

This event will provide an excellent opportunity for those with an interest in water asset management.
