Catchment-wide water resource solutions

SMEC is committed to the protection, enhancement and management of our precious water resources. We have deep expertise in integrated water cycle management from rainfall to run off, drinking water and resilience.

As with any natural resource, it exists in shortage (drought) and excess (flood). Therefore effective management practices require an assessment of risk. We also understand that managing the total water cycle requires a holistic, proactive, and broad approach that recognises that the climate is changing. Therefore our management measures consider sustainability and resilience in their conception.
