The Excellence award was from Engineers Australia for the section ‘Engineering for Regional Communities’
In November 2008, Centroc embarked upon a study of our region’s water supplies. The investigation included sophisticated modelling to forecast urban demand from the dozens of towns within our remit, for a 50-year horizon through to 2059.
We then, in consultation with our 17 local government members and our many other external stakeholders, set about understanding and evaluating the available options. Ultimately, we settled upon an integrated program of water conservation and demand management measures, coupled with new and upgraded water supply and storage infrastructure.
