We work with local and federal government, regulatory authorities and private organisations to provide technical advice for environmental assessments, as well as design solutions for infrastructure.
Our team can investigate, analyse and design solutions for coastal erosion. We also help government and communities plan for climate change.
Many complex processes affect the coastal zone. Storm surge, tidal movement, shoreline stability and stormwater drainage can all have an impact, as can the interaction between surface water and groundwater.
Development plans and infrastructure design should be based on a complete understanding of how these factors affect the site. The experienced team at Water Technology assesses the processes and risks affecting a specific site or problem.
Using our suite of assessment tools and modelling capability, we can discover tidal, wave, water quality and other oceanographic data. This detailed understanding means our advice is based on the best science and information.
We work with the client and local community to learn about the site and its history.
We collect any additional data needed and use spatial models to understand the site problem. We then identify the causes of the problem and forecast future impacts.
Adaptations or solutions are recommended to address the issue. We present these to our clients in a useful format, incorporating any structural designs required to protect infrastructure and the coastal environment.
