Accessing knowledge for sustainable construction
Back in February 2013, the UK Eversheds Water briefing included an article about EU proposals for allowing telecommunication cables in water pipes (both mains and wastewater apparently). This issue was discussed at length during preparation of the soon-to-be-published CIRIA C714 Transport infrastructure drainage: condition appraisal and remedial treatment.

These are developments that CIRIA, with the help of its Water Advisory Panel, will certainly keep a close eye on.
