Source Catchments: Results are in
Wed 13 Oct @ 10:30
Natural resource managers addressing complex water quantity and quality issues at key sites throughout Australia have been road-testing eWater’s integrated water modelling system, Source.
Today, to coincide with the official launch of Source Catchments, the first component to be publicly released, some of those managers addressed RiverSymposium to highlight the benefits of the product.
Wed 13 Oct @ 10:30: Astral 3 room
eWater presented a feature session as part of the program, titled Towards better water management decision-making: Putting eWater’s models to the test.
All catchments have lots of different elements. It is part of the job for catchment managers but handling the complexity is becoming harder than ever. So eWater has set up the Catchment Challenge to help you tackle the complexity.
The session included contributions from Professor Gary Jones, CEO eWater CRC, Tony Weber, BMT WBM, Dr Phillip Jordan, SKM, Dave Waters, QDERM, and Dr Matt Hardy, BMT WBM.
