Professor John Williams introduces one of Petersfield’s least-known facilities, and explains how our sewerage is contributing to developing solutions to real world environmental problems.

Did you know that tucked away on the outskirts of town Petersfield’s wastewater treatment works is home to a unique facility dedicated to developing more sustainable ways of managing the impact our waste and associated activity has on the planet?

This Environmental Technology Field Station (ETFS), a partnership between Portsmouth University and Southern Water, allows students and researchers to study, research and improve drainage systems, the detection of contaminants in soil and water, and the short-term and long-term management of waste.

Join us for a fascinating talk by Professor John Williams, Director of the ETFS, where you’re hear about this important facility, the work they carry out and the positive real-world impact they achieve.

Light refreshments including a glass of wine will be available.
