Our reputation with regulators and ability to draw on different disciplines within a project means that we can address complex challenges to deliver cost-effective and clearly communicated water outcomes.
With skills and expertise across both water quality and quantity studies, some of our key capabilities are outlined below.
Surface water quality is affected by complex natural and manmade influences across climate, catchment inflows, and processes occurring within estuaries and from offshore influences.
Natural groundwater resources are subject to increasing demand for agriculture, domestic and industrial use.
We bring together our expertise in flood management, water sensitive urban design, stormwater quality control, wastewater management, community needs and preservation of the natural environment to deliver an integrated solution.
Developing successful public policy for allocating scarce human, environmental and economic resources requires an understanding of the myriad trade-off decisions involved within the complex society that uses them.
Often seen as a problem, stormwater can in fact be a vital asset to reduce potable water demand and to maximise increasingly scarce water resources.
Helping our customers be wise with the water they use helps them improve environmental sustainability and stewardship while mitigating water security risk - and with careful targeting it also achieves excellent return on investment.
Measuring the impact on the natural environment of plumes and outfalls is both essential and complex.
From monitoring water quality to managing stormwater, we help developers and governments to successfully design and maintain artificial lakes.
Following on from our role in assisting Stockland to carry out environmental assessments and obtain federal approval for the project, BMT has been responsible for the planning and design of the stormwater quality and flood risk management strategy for the Aura site as well as on-going surface and groundwater monitoring.
Local governments in South East Queensland that contain over a certain population are required by the recently revised Environmental Protection (Water) Policy 2009 to develop and start implementing a Total Water Cycle Management (TWCM) plan before 1 July 2012.
BMT developed a 3D hydrodynamic and water quality model of the region around the Abrolhos Islands in Western Australia. In collaboration with BMT and the University of Western Australia, model results were used to assess the impact of proposed finfish aquaculture on the surrounding environment.
BMT used advanced numerical modelling tools and design expertise to develop a system wide remediation plan for a degraded lake with Unity Park, Kuching, Sarawak.
