Our work includes assessment and characterisation of waterway conditions and options for rehabilitation. As the waterway project progresses, we also provide detailed design and construction advice.
Our experts are sought-after project advisers, helping review and assess environmental performance, grant applications for river rehabilitation, major infrastructure projects and statutory planning.
Constructing infrastructure within or adjacent to a waterway requires careful consideration of the waterways features and processes.
Water Technology investigates the waterway, building an understanding of its behaviour and processes. We predict the results of any management actions, making recommendations for design or intervention to effectively manage the system for the future.
Our understanding of sedimentology and the geomorphic processes at work within catchments helps us reveal valuable insights and make robust recommendations.
We view the waterway holistically, considering its features and processes in the greater context of the surrounding landscape.
We consider the options and implications of management actions, evaluating these against the option avoiding intervention. We consider site-specific conditions that might affect a waterway, creating unusual or unexpected responses.
Our recommendations take into consideration the possibility of thresholds, lag times and complex responses in river adjustments.
