Water Conservation Seminar_Speakers & AttendeesAs part of The European Week of Waste Reduction (EWWR), a Schools Water Conservation Seminar was held by Kilkenny County Council to assist schools in lowering their water consumption both by water conservation measures and by providing them with knowledge to determine if their facility was experiencing a water leak.

The Seminar was held in the Springhills Hotel, Waterford Rd, 25th November 2009.
