Call for Volunteers for the National Industry Guidelines for hydrometric monitoring Periodic Review 2023-24

The Water Monitoring Standardisation Technical Committee (WaMSTeC) endorsed National Industry Guidelines for Hydrometric Monitoring in Australia are due for a periodic review.  The objectives of the periodic review are to:  
  1. ensure that the endorsed guidelines
    1. continues to meet all stated requirements,  
    2. remains technically sound, and  
    3. is up to date with technological advancements;
  2.  resolve technical incompleteness and errors;
  3. resolve glossary issues; and
  4. resolve editorial issues and maintain consistency across the guideline content. 

The periodic review will: 
  • be conducted against defined criteria,
  • stimulate industry dialogue in relation to the endorsed guideline, 
  • address issues and concerns identified by industry, 
  • explore requirements for guideline improvements,
  • increase benefits to users, and
  • inform development of other WaMSTeC guidelines through lessons learnt during the periodic review. 

Three separate subcommittees will be established for the review of the National Guidelines as follows:
