Join us in Deagon in north Brisbane at the latest Queensland Water Modelling Network event, as we explore skills and knowledge development for the Queensland water modelling and use sector.
The Queensland Government runs a major physical modelling facility at Deagon, to the north of Brisbane on the way to Redcliffe. The Deagon Facility provides large-scale physical modelling capability for the assessment of coastal infrastructure, development and impacts.
The Queensland Water Modelling Network (QWMN) is offering the opportunity to visit the Deagon Facility on 28 August so that you can:
The Deagon event will also include an opportunity to learn about the findings of the recent QWMN Skills and Knowledge Audit and to provide input to a response report that is being prepared to the Audit.
The event is targeted at all professionals working in the Queensland water modelling and use sector who are interested in:
We are looking for participants from across the spectrum, from young to more experienced professionals, and from all areas of water management, from catchment, waterways and resources to urban water management, including utilities, stormwater and drainage management, along with water sensitive cities.
The Deagon event will be held at the Queensland Government Deagon Facility from 3pm to 6:30pm on Wednesday 28 August.
An event bus will leave Southbank at 2:30pm on the 28th and return to the Southbank by 7pm.
Event registration will include return bus travel, a visit to the Deagon facility comprising guided tours of the big shed testing facility, the wave and tide monitoring network and the old Maroochydore model, and to finish off, a catered session to provide an opportunity to provide input to the Skills and Knowledge Audit response report.
The event has been organised by the International WateCentre for:
The Queensland Water Modelling Network (QWMN) is improving the state’s capacity to model its surface water and groundwater resources and their quality. The QWMN provides the tools, information and collaborative platforms to support best-practice use of water models, and the uptake of their results by policy makers and natural resource managers.
A consortium, led by the International WaterCentre, is delivering a program of work that complements QWMN activities and investments to facilitate greater collaboration among water modellers, users and decision makers across Queensland, creating a community of water modelling excellence.
