John Arundel started his career in the water industry in 1972 and subsequently joined Thames Water Authority in 1974. As a scientist in charge of laboratories based at sewage works sites, he acquired much practical operating experience. Trade effluent control, plant commissioning and survey work also came within his remit. In 1988, as a Principal Scientist, he took over the management of Thames Water's second largest laboratory at Reading. This had responsibility for rive and potable water analysis and later the analysis connected with the evaluation of the major refurbishment programme at wastewater plants then in progress.
