Hydraulic Analysis and Design

Failure of hydraulic structures can result in significant costs and major damage to other infrastructure.

We use our strong hydrologic and hydraulic modelling skills to analyse the hydraulic performance of existing structures and design culverts, bridges, drains, spillways and drop structures that are cost-effective, hydraulically efficient and minimise failure risk.

Case studies

Kalkarindji and Daguragu Floodplain Mapping Study

Kalkarindji is a growing major remote township

The NT Government wanted to identify flood-free land within the Kalkarindji township and environs

Borroloola Floodplain Mapping Study

Borroloola has a long history of flooding from the McArthur River

The study results assisted the NT Government to develop safer and more resilient communities

Adelaide River Town Flood Study

A comprehensive flood study and impact assessment of the Mackenzie River

The flood model results were used to identify the existing flood risk and flood hazards throughout the Adelaide River town

Mackay Ring Road

Mackay Ring Road

A major infrastructure planning study for the Mackay Ring Road

The completed report considered all potential impacts including flooding and community concerns

Drainage infrastructure

Bakers One

Trunk drainage assessment to support development opportunities

Developed an integrated suite of water quality and drainage infrastructure for the Bakers One catchment to facilitate future development

Landscaped low flow channel

Springfield Development

Flood and stormwater management for one of Australia’s largest urban developments

The adopted strategy maximised the developable area of the site
