VIC Branch Melbourne’s Underground Water Challenges Event

VIC Branch Melbourne’s Underground Water Challenges Event
Lessons learnt: Water challenges encountered and navigated by Melbourne’s tunneling projects

If you work in or near the Melbourne CBD you can't miss the works currently in progress on the Metro Tunnel.

The large number of tunneling projects are having a significant impact on the water industry. 

Join us for an engaging technical event that will share key lessons learnt in managing water challenges during delivery of these major projects. 

You’ll hear from speakers with diverse perspectives on various aspects while they share their experiences; ranging from groundwater recharge and flooding, to technically demanding asset relocations, as well as stakeholder engagement required to manage these challenges.

Please note; to mitigate risks around coronavirus we have decided to postpone this event to a tentative date of Thursday, 8 October. Any registrations to date will automatically be forwarded to this future date. We thank you for your understanding; if you have any queries, please email
