How we help local authorities

Planning and constructing community facilities and recreational assets requires a detailed understanding of the movement of water through the area.

Our team can complete scientific assessments and provide options to ensure your project is a success in the short and long term. We also consult with community stakeholders to understand the social factors influencing the site, while also building local understanding of the project.

We provide expert assessments of private developments, whether at the application, planning, construction or completion phase.

and Aquaculture

How we help the agriculture & aquaculture sector

A reliable, well-designed irrigation or aquaculture system is one of the foundations of efficient production.

We help you build an understanding of how water moves through the local landscape, designing infrastructure that is cost-effective and protects the natural environment.

We combine our understanding of agriculture and aquaculture operations with scientific insights into the water system to support your productivity.

How can we help you?

The groundwater is getting saltier, and I’m worried the trees are dying around my site.

The quality of groundwater can be affected by multiple factors, such as land use and water management changes. Understanding the source and the scale of impacts is essential for addressing salinity issues. We use multiple techniques to gain an understanding of your unique circumstances, including monitoring and modelling of the groundwater.

Contact one of our hydrogeologists to discuss your challenges and find out if applying managed aquifer recharge, to freshen the aquifer, could be a solution.

We have an opportunity to improve the health of our waterway. What should we do?

Assessing waterway health is an essential aspect of managing a waterway. Water Technology has extensive experience and expertise in river health and ecological condition assessments, fluvial geomorphic and process investigations and strategic river health, planning and design projects.

We offer a collaborative approach to our services, specifically aimed at achieving project objectives and identifying priorities for waterway and wetland management at both a strategic and on-ground level.

We bring extensive experience involving the transfer of technical information relating to environmental issues including geomorphology, waterway management and rehabilitation to technical and non-technical audiences.

I would like to investigate potential flood mitigation works for a flood-prone community.

We are passionate about increasing the resilience of flood-prone communities and implementing flood mitigation strategies and design.

The team at Water Technology are experienced in all aspects of flood risk management and have an excellent track record of designing flood mitigation works. We help identify a range of possible options for mitigation and then work through them with you to select the preferred option.

Adapting to coastal hazards

Climate change and increasing sea levels will intensify coastal hazards such as coastal inundation (temporary coastal flooding), storm erosion and long-term shoreline recession. It is necessary to consider and plan for the effects of these hazards on current and future development.

Water Technology can assist with preparing coastal hazard adaptation plans complying with all state policies. This includes the coastal engineering assessment of hazard extents, as well as developing adaptation options and their associated risk, and conducting community and stakeholder engagement ensure the plans are accepted and implemented by the land/asset managers and the local community.

I need to identify the best strategy for utilising my available multiple water resources?

Balancing water demand, water scarcity and flood risk are everpresent challenges to communities in managing water resources. We apply our extensive skills across the water resource management to understand the opportunities in developing an appropriate and cost-effective integrated water management strategy. Our experience, knowledge and relationship with local authorities and regulatory bodies put us in a strong position to develop an optimal solution for your situation.

I need a water management solution for my development application

It is essential development is carried out with minimal impact to the surrounding environment. Our team can assist with the environmental impact assessments, feasibility assessments, stormwater management plans and flood impact assessments.

We can help you understand what the relevant authority needs to approve your development application and design your development to achieve the authorities performance criteria for approval.
