Victorian Branch – Catchment Management Technical Seminar
On 22 March 2017, World Water Day, the Australian Water Association’s Victorian Branch, in collaboration with the Association's Catchment Management Specialist Network, held a one day Catchment Management Technical Seminar in Melbourne.
The theme of the seminar was Catchment management for water quality
, and the stated objective of the day was Building understanding between land managers, catchment management authorities and water corporations on how catchment management delivers water quality benefits
The seminar was broken up into four sessions:
• Session 1: Policy frameworks for catchment management
• Session 2: The big picture and the state of the science
• Session 3: Managing and understanding pathogen risks in catchments
• Session 4: Practical responses to catchment issues
Approximately 70 delegates attended the day. Whilst it was billed as a Victorian branch event, there were several interstate presenters and delegates.
The presentations were of a high quality and covered a range of contemporary catchment management issues. Initial feedback from delegates was very positive.
More details on the speakers, and the topics they covered on the day, can be found in the accompanying seminar flyer
Presenters have been asked if they would like to turn their presentations into papers for publication in the Association’s Water e-Journal
