Infrastructure Project Innovation Award, Warrnambool Roof Water Harvesting Project – Wannon Water
The Warrnambool Roof Water Harvesting Project is a leading example of integrated water management. The project creates a new water catchment by capturing water from roofs that would otherwise be lost in run-off, supporting more liveable and sustainable cities. Wannon Water's innovative project is a first in Australia.
Sam Skinner, Consultant, Environment & Planning, Aurecon
Student Water Prize Quantifying Wastewater Dewaterability for Improved Water Recycling
Sam has undertaken a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne. He has investigated the dewaterability of biofouling in filtration processes, which led to the first quantitative correlation between the extent of digestion and filterability. He has also shown that compressibility is the cause of rapid transmembrane increases in membrane bioreactors.
