Water Technology Delivers on Flood Plans

In the past 12 months Water Technology has delivered a large number of Flood Mapping Investigations and Floodplain Management Plans for our clients. These investigations were all aimed toward better understanding flood risk in Victoria’s vulnerable communities and recommending flood mitigation measures to reduce that risk. These investigations have added to the already long list of studies Water Technology has successfully completed within the Victorian floodplain industry, furthering our position as the leading floodplain consultant in Victoria.

 As a result of these investigations being completed on time, our clients were in a position to apply for NDRGS funding to advance functional flood mitigation designs to detailed designs and construction. Funding submissions were made in May 2013 and we wish our clients the best of luck for their submissions.

 These investigations have all been very interesting and challenging and our staff have thoroughly enjoyed working on them. Water Technology looks forward to working with our clients on more of these investigations in the coming years for the benefit of Victoria’s most vulnerable communities.
