  • Thames Tideway - Dr Stovin recently contributed (with Prof. Richard Ashley) to the OFWAT Independent Review of the Thames Tideway Strategic Study (OFWAT, 2005, PROC/01/0021) led by Jacobs Babtie.

  • SNIFFER (UE3(05)UW5): Retrofitting sustainable urban water solutions - we worked jointly with SISTech on this project, which was aimed at improving water quality in a specific case study catchment (Caw Burn) and - ultimately - leading to generic National (Scottish) guidance for retrofitting SUDS.
