Water management: Supporting better decision-making

Date: Thursday 29 April

Time: 3:15pm - 6:00pm

Venue: Hilton on the Park, 192 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne

The water industry is grappling with the need to effectively and accurately analyse alternative water management and climatic scenarios within rapid timeframes. Water systems modelling is now a mission critical tool to support this objective, requiring the seamless integration and synthesis of complex information from a range of disciplines and fi elds of knowledge.

eWater is working with partners in Victoria and throughout Australia to develop and trial a modelling system which will support analysis and decision-making across the full water cycle.

This session features a panel of Victorian industry experts and will provide real world examples of the modelling system in action, including:

  • Murray-Darling Basin: source-to-mouth modelling for integrated management and operation
  • Great Barrier Reef: protecting an international icon from catchment pollution
  • Water sensitive urban design: implications for water security and effi cient water use
  • Environmental water: Murray River – quantifying and communicating environmental water needs

Session chair: Garry Smith, Director, DG Consultants and board member, eWater CRC

Speakers include:

  • Professor Gary Jones, Chief Executive, eWater CRC
  • Campbell Fitzpatrick, Executive Director, Water Resource Policy, Department of Sustainability and Environment
  • Rory Nathan, GM Technology & Practice, SKM

Product demonstrations and refreshments from 5:30pm
