Established in 2013, the WETT Centre brings together researchers with complementary knowledge and skills to develop technologies and methodologies for managing the quality and quantity of water for society’s needs in a sustainable manner.

We achieve this by engaging with national and international community, government and industry and conducting research to enable the provision of clean and safe water for public consumption and the environment. The Centre also supports undergraduate and postgraduate training, in preparation for future careers within the water industry.
