Water Technology Pty Ltd

Water Technology has been providing water related solutions for clients for over 15 years. As an Australian owned company, Water Technology has grown beyond its initial base of hydraulic modelling into all aspects of surface water, coastal and natural resource management. What has not changed over the 15 years is Water Technology?s commitment to quality outputs and the provision of value for money. The company has successfully employed the best engineers and scientists to build a circa 50 person team team that offers high levels of service, backed by the latest technology. In recent years, Water Technology has invested heavily in our operational systems and processes so that we can provide our clients with the confidence that the outputs we produce have the highest levels of quality, safety and environmental sustainability. The strength of Water Technology has been built upon the maintenance of long-term relationships with clients based on trust, delivery and providing the best available resources to complete our projects.

Surface water management

  • Hydronet anticipatory water management platform
    HydroNET provides online information, dashboards and waterapps to enable water managers to make the best use of their resources. HydroNET is Software as a Service solution that supports professionals in the water and environmental sectors to manage their water systems and to improve the resilience of the systems in all weather conditions knowing that the climate is changing. http://www.hydronet.com/
  • Gippsland Lakes investigations
    Ecological and water quality experts from Water Technology and Monash University joined forces to assess the water quality and ecological processes of the Gippsland Lakes. A 3-D fully coupled hydrodynamic – biological – ecological model was used to explore the interaction between the physical and biogeochemical controls over Nodularia blooms. The hydrodynamic model included turbulent mixing within the water column, whilst the ecological component of the model contained over 40 state variables and 200+ processes, parameterised by 176 constants to describe the biological/ecological and chemical reactions occurring in the water column and sediment compartments.
  • Rum Jungle Surface Water Management
    Water Technology undertook surface water investigations for the Rum Jungle mine site rehabilitation project. In particular, this included the development of a rainfall-runoff model of the East Finniss River catchment to assist with calculation of pollutant loads and dilution rates for pollutants leaving the site and entering the river, the delineation of mine site surface water catchments, the estimation of rainfall infiltration rates into the waste rock dumps and Dyson’s Backfilled Open Cut, flood studies to assist the rehabilitation program and geomorphic stability assessments.
  • National Coastal Vulnerability Assessment—Pimpama Case Study
    Water Technology was part of a multi-disciplinary study team examining the potential impacts of climate change on the coastline and ecosystems of the Pimpama River, and adjacent parts of southern Moreton Bay. Water Technology undertook both floodplain and estuarine hydrodynamic modelling to quantify the physical changes likely to be imposed on the area through climate change. These results were used to assess the risks posed to community infrastructure. The results were also used as inputs to the eco-system response models to quantify changes in habitat/coastal processes faced by the existing ecosystems.
  • Yangtze River Flood Control and Management Project
    A joint project of the Chinese and Australian Governments (managed via AusAid) with the overall aim of reducing the significant loss of life and damage suffered every year within the Yangtze River floodplain, Water Technology staff worked with Chinese counterparts to quantitatively improve the accuracy of flood forecasts along a 1600km length of the Yangtze River and associated lake systems. A Decision Support System that combined the flood forecasting capabilities with web based assessment of flood management options for use in a real time context was also developed. An extensive capacity building program was undertaken.
