The Water Innovation Network – a partnership between Anglian Water and Opportunity Peterborough – is launching The Big Water Challenge 2016.

The two-month long challenge will see companies working out ground-breaking solutions to one of the industry’s thorniest problems. The theme for the inaugural challenge is ‘Keep the Water Flowing’ and will focus on ways Anglian Water can maintain supplies to customers’ homes and restore water after a burst pipe as quickly as possible.

To give participating companies a background to the issue they will be invited to an event in Peterborough on May 6th where they will get to quiz experts, explore the difficulties of dealing with supply interruptions and get to grips with the challenge.

They will then have six weeks to refine and submit their ideas. These ideas will be whittled down to a final shortlist of firms who will get the chance to pitch to a panel of senior Anglian Water staff. The winning idea will get financial and technical support from the company to make their idea a reality.
