Abstract

eWater is an Australian government-industry and research joint venture, established to build, apply and support a modern integrated catchment and basin-scale urban, water resources and conjunctive use hydrological and ecological modelling system for Australia’s uniquely variable climate.  Through the domain knowledge associated with these core components, eWater also provides water policy, management and scientific advisory services to its government partners and to external clients including monitoring network and modelling approaches.

eWater's software development, modelling technologies and water management knowledge boost the ability of governments and organisations to make policy and management decisions that are sustainable, cost-effective, transparent, and scientifically defendable.  Because of Australia’s variable climate, eWater’s tools are uniquely equipped to facilitate management of complex catchment and urban systems under future uncertain climate regimes.

eWater Source (www.ewater.com.au/products/ewater-source/) is a next-generation, professionally supported integrated water resources modeling system. eWater’s on-line ‘Toolkit’ (www.ewater.com.au/products/ewater-toolkit/), with ten thousand international members, is a 'one-stop shop' for water and catchment management utility tools.

Dr Robert Carr, Deputy CEO of eWater will present eWater’s unique eco-hydrological capability including Source.IMS and other eWater tools such as music and Urban Developer.
