We are delighted to announce a special offer for Stormwater Australia members to receive a significant discount off TUFLOW training.

 TUFLOW is holding training around the country from June to August and are offering a 20% discount to Stormwater Industry members.  Equivalent to close to $200 saving per day of training this is a fantastic opportunity to get value from your membership.  To redeem this offer all you need to do is supply a current member number when you register for TUFLOW training.

TUFLOW is a world-leading, powerful 1D and 2D computational engine for simulating floods, tides and pipe network hydraulics.  It has been successfully applied world-wide to a diverse range of applications, scaling from coastal storm tide inundation to regional whole-of-catchment flooding, right down to fine-scale urban flooding with complex pipe networks.

Training is focused on TUFLOW’s fixed grid modelling platforms, which includes the both “Classic” and heavily parallelised (HPC enabled) solvers. Both Introductory and Advanced training is available.

The training courses offer something for all user levels; from core 2D modelling theory, model setup and review skills for beginners, through to ‘inside the black box’ and the latest Australian Rainfall & Runoff 2016 integration tools for existing users.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn directly from the TUFLOW software development team.

Stormwater Australia has been advancing the Stormwater Improvement Device Evaluation Protocol (SQIDEP).

Recent milestones include a peer review by Swinburne University, which provided useful feedback to help improve the current draft, and securing Melbourne Water’s commitment as a key stakeholders, including a financial contribution to help bring us closer to launch.

Directors on the National Stormwater Australia Board met in Melbourne on the 26 and 27 March this year for a strategic planning session and their March Board meeting.

Thank you Melbourne Water for hosting the event.

Stormwater Australia's Board recently endorsed its submission to the Productivity commissions draft report on the National Water Initiative.  This followed an earlier submisison in response to an Issues Paper that was released earlier in 2017.

The recent work by Stormwater Australia has been noticed internationally.

Over the past few weeks your Editorial team has been trying to work out the potential impacts of the Federal Budget on the development and implementation of more effective stormwater management policies and programs.

We have sought formal input from relevant Federal ministers, shadow ministers and agencies but, at this stage, nothing has come through. As it does, we will certainly keep you up to date, but a quick review of the Budget decisions in areas that could affect development in stormwater management have shown there are some significant challenges ahead, including:
