We have actively participated in Queensland’s Export Awards program, being awarded as finalists on several occasions.

  • ANZECC water quality guidelines revision
    Revision of several chapters of the ANZECC/ARMCANZ 2000 water quality guidelines, provision of review of draft methodologies for development of water quality guideline values (formerly trigger values) and assistance with revision of the water quality management framework incorporated into the guidelines
  • Deriving site-specific guideline values for physico-chemical parameters and toxicants.
    The EN provides guidance tailored specifically to the CSG and LCM industry. CSG and LCM operations are often located in arid, semi-arid or wet–dry tropical regions with temporary water bodies such as ephemeral streams and salt lakes. The explanatory note introduces the use of a water and sediment quality management framework (WQMF) to assist with the design of spatially and temporally appropriate monitoring programs for measuring physico-chemical parameters and toxicants from which site-specific GVs for water and sediment quality can be developed. How to design a monitoring program and then derive site-specific GVs for water and sediment is explained within the context of the CSG and LCM industry.
