Bligh Tanner has extensive relevant experience in water policy, technical services and project delivery. Water is essential for human existence, yet urban population growth, climate change and environmental pressures are dramatically and permanently altering the ways in which we use and reuse water. Bligh Tanner has set international benchmarks for innovative integrated water management. The firm seeks to reduce the pressure of modern development on the water environment and create new development opportunities in an increasingly regulated or stressed landscape – leaving a legacy of improved access to water and reduced impacts from flooding.
