Event description
A two-day forum exploring key issues in water catchment management including a significant focus on bushfire impacts and recovery

About this Event

The 2020 Catchment Forum will bring together water quality experts, health regulators and government to discuss catchment challenges including cyanobacteria and algal bloom outbreaks, low reservoir levels, health-based targets and the impact of extreme weather-related events.

The Forum is designed for catchment managers, water security/resilience managers, environmental engineers and, water and health regulators.

Our speakers will focus on evidence-based solutions for maintaining healthy catchments in challenging times.

There are no more challenging times than these, with the unprecedented bushfire events currently engulfing Australia.

The forum will have a significant focus on bushfire impacts including:

  • effects and potential challenges
  • risk management approaches
  • catchment management decisions
  • recovery and future planning

The Forum will also feature the soon-to-be-launched Source Water Assessment Guide.

This WaterRA project was initiated at the request of our member water utilities to provide a guidance document for undertaking Sanitary Surveys of pathogen sources in drinking water catchments.

Drawing together professional good practice from WaterRA member organisations, and the broader international water sector, this guidance was formed as a part of understanding catchment pathogen pollution sources and their associated controls.

This guidance highlights and builds upon existing good practice nationally and internationally, and will be referred to in the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) updates to the ADWG guidance.

The preliminary program is now available on our website.
