Northern Territory

WRM Water & Environment is delighted to announce the expansion of our Northern Territory office to serve our growing client base.

WRM’s senior staff have been working in the Territory since the late 1990s and established a permanent Darwin office in 2018 led by long-time Territorian Phill Piper.

In response to ongoing growth in our NT work, we have expanded our Darwin office and relocated to new premises at 3 Whitfield Street. Our new NT team includes WRM Principal Engineer Julian Orth (NT Office Manager), Phill Piper (Business Development Manager) and a specialist Project Engineer, Joshua Lokatili.

Our Darwin-based surface water modelling team enables us to offer dedicated local resources to our NT clients. We are also able to call on the wider WRM team of more than 20 specialist engineers to take on the largest and most complicated projects in the Territory.

We are confident that the combination of WRM’s industry-leading technical expertise and local knowledge will enable us to provide outstanding levels of service to our existing and new NT clients.

Please feel free to contact Julian or Phill via our NT office (+61 8 8911 0060) to discuss how WRM’s capabilities can reduce risk and contribute to the success of your project.

Case studies

Tennant Creek Stormwater Investigation

Drainage characteristics in Tennant Creek are complex, particularly during large flow events

The key challenge was to develop an understanding of the drainage behaviour and limitations of the Tennant Creek network

Kilgariff Flood and Stormwater Management Plan

The site is affected by regional flooding from the Todd River

The key challenge was to define a drainage strategy that was sympathetic to the local environment

Katherine Flood and Flood Mitigation Studies

The key challenge for this project was to identify cost-effective flood risk management measures

The flood modelling showed that it is possible to significantly reduce flooding of properties in Katherine during smaller more frequent floods

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

Jervois Base Metal Project EIS, Surface Water Assessment

KGL Resources is planning to mine copper and other base metals such as lead and zinc

Surface water management is a balance of ensuring adequate water supply and managing contaminated runoff

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
