Water Technology was engaged by the Phillip Island Nature Parks to undertake the Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Coastal Processes Study. The objective of the project was to conduct an assessment of recent coastal evolution, future response of the coastline to coastal processes, and identify potential threats to natural and infrastructure assets as a result of coastal processes now and into the medium-term future.

The overall outcome was to determine potential management strategies to protect natural assets such as Little Penguin and Hooded Plover habitat and the park’s critical infrastructure such as the viewing stands at Penguin Parade, the boardwalks at Smiths Beach, and the car park and Surf Lifesaving Club at Woolamai Beach.
