We began in 2005 as the eWater Cooperative Research Centre
The eWater Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) was formed by the merging of the CRC for Catchment Hydrology (1993-2005) and the CRC for Freshwater Ecology (1995-2005).
Our mission was to develop a new eco-hydrological modelling system for Australia.
In 2012, the members of the CRC agreed that it was time to move from research to adoption. To this end, the government members of the CRC established eWater Ltd as a not-for-profit, government-owned enterprise with the purpose of continuing the development, adoption and commercialisation of the tools developed by the various CRCs, including:
- eWater Source – the National Hydrological Modelling Platform
- MUSIC (Model for Urban Stormwater Improvement Conceptualisation)
- eWater Toolkit.
