IPWEA NSW has produced a Gangers handbook for use by work supervisors and works staff, within local government, public works, constructions and contracting industries in city, urban and country environments.  It will also be of value to young engineers as they gain experience in the field.  The handbook allows members of the workforce to learn what 'works staff' do and open up opportunities for workers seeking advancement in their careers.  Encompassing such a broad range of activities, the handbook is written at a ' not-too technical' level.

Assistance of more qualified personnel should be sought as required.

The Gangers handbook will be the practical reference book used during the training.  A copy will be provided to all participants free of charge.

Living Waterways Framework Workshop

Living Waterways Framework Workshop

  • Orange Agricultural Institute Training Centre

The Environment & Waterways Alliance is hosting an exciting workshop - in partnership with SPLASH and Water NSW - that will introduce participants to a fantastic methodology for developing multi-faceted projects that incorporate water sensitive urban design.

The approach is site-driven and aligns traditional stormwater principles with place-making benefits and the flexibility to cater for a variety of development types within the community.

This training will provide participants with the skills to:

  • Identify ways to meet community and environmental outcomes through good design
  • Communicate and engage with key stakeholders
  • Identify best practice design options and understand technical specifications
  • Promote collaborative thinking for design solutions and strategies and ownership of Living Waterways outcomes
  • Critique a ‘water-related project’ of the participants choice using the Living Waterways Framework
  • Use the ‘water-related project’ to work through key grant criteria to develop ‘shelf ready’ projects to take advantage of upcoming grant programs

This award winning framework is currently being used by a number of local and state Government organisations across NSW as a means of designing and delivering multi-functional stormwater projects.

Registration is for a multi-disciplinary team consisting of 5-8 individuals within Council based on a nominated water-related project to apply the Living Waterways Framework and work through key grant criteria. Subsidised for our Member Councils at the affordable cost of $1200 - a saving of $1000, this is a valuable workshop producing effective outcomes.
