This research theme embraces the design of systems to manage the quantity, quality and distribution of water, whether potable, waste or stormwater.
Water quality management includes the development of systems to protect and monitor the quality in water bodies, such as catchment management, novel methods for the detection of pesticides, and detection and reduction of cyanobacterial (blue green algal) blooms. Studies are conducted on the fate of heavy metals in the environment, and the relationship and impacts of recycled water and stormwater on wetlands and shallow marine ecosystems.
