Harvesting of surface runoff is an important source of water supply for urban areas and many mining and industrial operations.
Our catchment modelling expertise includes assessment of catchment yield which enables us to assess the reliability of water supply systems relying on surface runoff. We also model the interaction between storage size and water demand to identify required storage volumes to achieve different levels of supply reliability. We have undertaken both local and basin-wide studies of rainfall-runoff behaviour, catchment yield, water demands and reservoir operations.

Methodology to define the volume and timing of stormwater flows available for harvesting
Based on a novel approach to configuring the MUSIC hydrologic model
ROL & IROL Audits
Audit of water supply scheme operation, data collection and reporting against ROL and IROL licence requirements.
Audits have been undertaken for the following water supply schemes:
- Mareeba Dimbulah
- Wide Bay
- Ross River
- Paluma Crystal
