WRc a winner at the Water Industry Awards

May 28, 2021

RSK company WRc is delighted to announce that it has been named the winner in the Outstanding Contribution to Environmental Improvement category at the 2021 Water Industry Awards. The leading centre of excellence for innovation and growth learned of its success at the virtual awards ceremony yesterday, 27 May.

The Water Industry Awards, celebrating their 15th anniversary in 2021, recognise the excellent work of UK water companies and their supply chains. This year, there were 21 categories to enter, ranging from Water Retailer of the Year to Woman of the Year.

In the Outstanding Contribution to Environmental Improvement category, it was WRc’s Water UK Fine to Flush standard that impressed the judges. The Fine to Flush specification was devised to address one of the key priorities for the water industry: to protect the environment from pollution caused by improperly disposed-of wet wipes that block sewers. Since the publication of the standard in 2019, Water UK has certified 48 different products that meet the Fine to Flush specification. These products are now widely available and are able to demonstrate that they are flushable and plastic free and do not cause environmental damage from sewage pollution caused by a blockage or pump failure linked to their use. The range of tested products includes those from most major UK retailers and the UK’s leading wipes brand. A list of certified products is available on the WRc website.

Matt Hart, Operations Director at WRc, said, “Winning this prestigious award is fantastic recognition of the hard work that our teams, partners and clients have put into this project. We are dedicated to creating green, innovative solutions and are delighted that our efforts have been rewarded.”
