Scottish Water is helping to train water industry staff in Canada. A team from the utility’s international arm is in Alberta at the moment delivering workshops on the management of water from source to tap. The firm said handling water efficiently was jumping up the list of priorities for many nations.
Nigel Ayton, director of International Business Development with Scottish Water said: “These are crucial times with management of the water cycle high on many countries’ agendas and many global water issues.
“Many utilities need to find greater efficiencies at a time when finance is difficult and our model of an independently regulated water utility that is publicly owned is of great interest to many countries.”
