The Water Control Room Forum (W-CRF) has been established by UK water companies “To facilitate appropriate exchanges in order to share insights and best practice in meeting current and future business challenges”.

W-CRF provides:
  • A forum in which the knowledge, expertise and experience of tackling technical, cultural, organisational and procedural challenges of control rooms can be shared in an open environment;
  • A like-minded network in which mutual support can be freely given to improve control room operations nationally;
  • Opportunities to view a range of control rooms in the water industry and, on a selected basis, in other industries;
  • Opportunities for networking with control room professionals from the water industry and, on a selected basis, with other utilities, academia, consultants and contractors.
Licence to Control

A W-CRF spin-off initiative, known as Licence to Control (L2C), is addressing the skill gap as the industry moves from reactive control to more proactive ways of working.
