Aurora Environmental Presenting at EcoForum 2016

We are excited to announce that Aurora Environmental will be presenting at ALGA’s EcoForum in Fremantle in October 2016. It will be an exciting event and an excellent forum to deliver our very topical presentations.

How Can We Ensure the Greatest Environmental & Social Benefits from Brownfield Development in Perth?

Brad Dermody (Director, Associate Environmental Scientist) will be delivering an analysis on how the Western Australian community is placed to take advantage of brownfield development and meet the Government’s strategic objectives for the Perth and Peel regions over the next decades.  This is a hot topic at a time where policies and guidelines are not necessarily aligned to produce the most sustainable and economic outcomes.  There are questions which need asking and answering before the best outcome can be realised.

Making Risk-Informed Decisions for Groundwater Management

Pamela Lee (Senior Environmental Scientist) has spent the past three and a half years leading and advising the Westadium Consortium (through Multiplex) on environmental management during design and construction of the new Perth Stadium.  This has naturally included a large range of sensitive issues requiring careful management.  Pamela will be presenting on the innovative decision making process adopted for groundwater management associated with ground improvements.

Reducing the Uncertainty of a Legacy Groundwater Issue

Nicole Buckingham (Project Environmental Scientist) will be providing insight into the improved level of certainty one our key clients gained through our strategic approach to investigation and risk assessment in relation to an old (and inherited) large groundwater plume.  There have been challenges for the groundwater investigation including the presence of dense organic contaminants, variable lateral groundwater flow and multiple aquifers.  Our client gained significant savings while reaching a desirable site reclassification.
