CIWEM partnership sought

A PLAN for radical change of the Chartered Institute of Water & Environmental Management has raised concerns at ICE Council.

CIWEM proposals to form technical societies covering air quality management, community environment management, waste and land management and water services management were questioned because of the potential clash with ICE technical boards.

Vice president technical affairs David Cawthra said ICE should counter the threat through partnering arrangements. He said: 'There is a very large degree of overlap between them and us. It's our view that we should maximise the opportunity to collaborate. We have identified CIWEM as a partner for the future.'

Council was asked to note the CIWEM consultation paper offering a new vision to appeal to a wider professional interest than the current 12,000 members which includes water and environmental engineers. Council agreed that discussions should start soon.
