The growth predicted in Sydney is reaching unprecedented levels in areas where there has been limited to no development. The Greater Sydney Commission has indicated the need to rethink urban development and a wish to develop a parkland city in the South Creek catchment. The blue-green grid corridor means that as engineers, scientist and practioners we will need to consider the waterway and waterway health up front in any design.

Three presentors will focus on the impact of urban development on waterway health and hyrdrology and how we can improve, protect and maintain good waterway health with great amenity in urban areas that also provide habitat to iconic species and provide environmental value.

Please join us afterwards for ‘After 5 Networking, Nibbles and Drinks’ at the nearby Commercial Hotel to continue networking. For catering purposes please register your attendance separately for the After 5 networking event.
