Next month, the IWA Conference on water efficiency, will be held in the historic Roman city of Bath in England (18 - 20 July 2017). Water is at the heart of this historic city in the rolling countryside of south west England. The natural hot springs and the original Roman-era baths provide a setting of efficient water management from the past. The city is known for its 18th-century Georgian architecture and honey-coloured bath stone used in much of the city’s architecture. Bath is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
