CANBERRA, ACT, Australia, Aug. 6, 2009 -- A workshop, 'Emerging practice in active environmental water management', for active environmental water managers, was convened by eWater and the National Water Commission (Australia) in February. The report is now available.
The aim of the workshop was to highlight and record the technical, scientific and other issues these professionals face in this emerging field of water management.
As became clear at the workshop, on-ground managers have substantial knowledge about the tactics and operations involved in environmental watering. And new practices are emerging in various places and situations which need to be documented and shared if this field is to progress.
The report of the workshop summarizes the day's discussions and presents the findings of a preceding investigation into eight case studies of environmental watering.
eWater Cooperative Research Centre began operations during September 2005, and was officially launched on World Water Day, 22 March 2006. eWater is governed and managed by eWater Limited, a company established by the eWater CRC participants, with an independent, skills-based board.
