Water & Environment Services
In order to deliver an integrated approach to our surface water, groundwater and coastal management, our services are delivered by specialist engineers and scientists with a broad skill base.
COASTAL & MARINE SERVICES
Water Technology is one of Australia’s leading coastal and ocean engineering consultancies offering a comprehensive range of services to the coastal and marine industry. We have experience in all zones of the coastal and ocean environment, from inter-tidal wetland regions to deep-sea ocean conditions; the nature of our projects ranging from ecological and habitat assessments to structural design and assessments of breakwaters.
Water Technology, through a strong client based background, has developed solutions to the most challenging flooding and stormwater management issues on all scales of development across Australia. From one to two lots to tens of thousands of lot subdivisions, Water Technology’s solutions provide cost effective and workable solutions that achieve excellent outcomes.
Water Technology ecologists have extensive technical and practical expertise in flora, fauna and ecosystem assessment and management. Staff have strong regional industry relationships and work closely with clients to develop applied and practical ecological solutions to issues of water and land management.
We utilise our extensive and complimentary skill set to provide environmental assessment of all aquatic environments and complete monitoring and modelling to establish innovative solutions.
FLOOD INVESTIGATION & RISK ASSESSMENT
Flood Investigation and Risk Assessment is a core business for Water Technology. With flood specialists in our Melbourne, Brisbane and regional offices having completed investigations in all parts of Australia, we provide an unparalleled depth of experience in this field. We provide a full range of flood investigation and risk assessment services for government and private clients at regional, township and site specific scales.
Water Technology provides a range of services to the mining and gas industry for planning, operational, and closure phases. We are able to apply a range of skills to solving problems relating to surface water at or near mine sites.
STORMWATER MANAGEMENT & IMPROVEMENT
Water Technology has a diverse history of stormwater quantity and quality assessments throughout urban areas. Having significant and well-respected skills in both flood modelling and water quality assessments, Water Technology provide truly integrated stormwater solutions, which meet the required objectives in a cost effective, aesthetic and environmentally sensitive manner.
WATERWAY ASSESSMENT & MANAGEMENT
At Water Technology, we pride ourselves on an advanced understanding of the physical processes of waterways and the factors that influence them. We use our understanding to design methodologies that give clients exactly what they need.
GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT & HYDROGEOLOGY
We offer an integrated and innovative approach, unique to each project, through the collaboration of our in-house hydrogeologists, engineers and numerical modellers. We excel in translating science into technically sound and evidence-based management outcomes. We apply our knowledge and understanding of key processes to achieve holistic solutions whilst managing potential risk for our clients and the environment.
DATA COLLECTION & ANALYSIS DESIGN
Many factors impact on excellent environmental process modelling, analyses and subsequent design outcomes, potentially the most significant of which is the availability of sufficient, high quality, data. At Water Technology, much of our work is associated with the analysis and interpretation of data such as water levels, salinity and other water quality parameters that are measured in the field. We use the data to assist in developing an in-depth understanding of environmental conditions and to calibrate and validate the wide range of numerical models we develop and apply for different projects.
