Sustainable management of water systems requires recognition and protection of environmental assets. Integrated Water Cycle Management (ICWM) is a framework that deals effectively with the complex interactions between various parts of the water cycle, including stormwater, water supply and wastewater. Modelling of environmental systems such as wetlands presents unique challenges, including the need to model long continuous flow sequences, while still capturing complex hydraulic behaviour, such as floodplain breakouts or regulator operations. Our environmental hydrology and hydraulics capabilities include:

  • Wetland hydrology & hydraulics
  • Water balance
  • Estuarine and littoral zone modelling
  • Regulators – flow allocation and environmental flows
  • Estimating regression relationships and flow splits for natural break-outs, off-takes, to facilitate decision making and plan environmental flow releases
