Water Industry Process Automation & Control


SWIG & SWIG Events

The Sensors for Water Interest Group  (SWIG)  is one of the premium interest groups in the UK Water Industry and it promotes the dissemination of information on sensor developments and fosters collaboration through targeted workshops. SWIG offers a cost effective way of maintaining an up to date knowledge of, and dissemination of, information on individual new technologies and/or sensor applications. SWIG workshops also consider the effect of existing and forecast regulations and legislation on the design and use of environmental and process measurements.


SWIG was originally set up in 1993 along with other special Interest Groups, with funding from the DTI Advanced Sensor Technology Transfer Programme. SWIG became a limited company in 1996. In 2018 we are celebrating 25 years of SWIG!


The aims and objectives of SWIG are to:


  • Provide a forum for manufacturers, end users and researchers in the sensor community to test new ideas,  exchange views and network.
  • Provide workshops that concentrate on practical applications and current challenges for measurement and control in the water, wastewater and natural waters.
  • Encourage collaboration between all parties interested in research, development and use of sensors for the control and measurement of water quality and quantity.


In 2018/19 leading up to SWIG's next Sensing in Water Conference there is a fascinating series of workshops.
