The Splash network is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Engineers Australia and the International Erosion Control Association to deliver the inaugural Splash Inter-Industry Forum. This is an opportunity to bring together different disciplines who all play a role in finding solutions to complex integrated water management problems.
The growth predicted in Sydney is reaching unprecedented levels in areas that have previously been limited to little to no development. The Greater Sydney Commission has indicated the need to rethink urban development and the goal to develop a parkland city in the South Creek catchment. The blue – green corridor means that as engineers, scientists and practitioners we will need to consider the water and waterway health up front in our designs.
Three presenters (Carl Tippler CT Environmental, Dan Owens Soil Conservation Service & Michael Frankcombe IECA) will focus on the impact of urban development on waterway health and hydrology and how we can improve, protect and maintain good waterway health with great amenity in urban areas that also provide habitate to iconic species and provide environmental value.
Registrations are still open and remaining places are limited. Be sure to register here. Please note the complimentary Splash registrations have all now been allocated however if you are a member of Engineers Australia or IECA you may still be able to register for free.
