Free business seminar will show ways to cut water bill and build resilience plan if supply is cut

A free seminar is being held by Tewkesbury Borough Council to highlight ways businesses can combat emergencies like cuts to their water supply.

Pictures of the awful flooding that has affected parts of Yorkshire this week will have sparked memories of the 2007 floods in Gloucestershire.

Then, the county was left without running water after the Mythe treatment works near Tewkesbury was cut off.

While action has been taken to prevent a repeat of the events of July and August 2007, the council are offering the free seminar on November 19 (2-5pm) to highlight what else can be done.

Representatives from Severn Trent Water will be there to answer any questions about water supply issues and incidents. They will also outline the resilience measures taken since 2007.

There will also be advice about the water market and how your business could save water and money.

Advice will be given on how to create a simple emergency plan for your business as well as busting myths about the loss adjuster process regarding insurance claims.

Organised by Tewkesbury Borough Council in partnership with Tewk

esbury Growth Hub, there will be speakers from both Severn Trent Water and Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters (CILA) and Business in the Community.

This seminar is aimed at businesses in the hospitality and agricultural sectors that are particularly reliant on water supply, but is open to any business.

There is free parking available at the venue and refreshments will be provided, as well as an opportunity to network.

The event will be held at Tewkesbury Borough Council's Public Services Centre (in the Severn room), Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury, GL20 5TT from 2pm on November 19.
