Monitoring is a key component of many water management projects in order to quantify the benefits of management interventions, act as a feedback mechanism to modify strategies and address knowledge gaps.
The success of monitoring programs is dependent upon a number of factors including resource availability. However, having clear monitoring objectives, understanding processes and applying techniques that capture useful data, are critical in conducting successful monitoring programs. Additionally, the collection of monitoring data from multiple sources, where possible, can also improve confidence in results.
Our project experience ranges from small scale event monitoring such as responses to flooding or aquifer testing, to monitoring large scale regional bore networks and conducting site assessments for regulatory purposes. AWE use experienced field personnel who understand the importance of careful documentation, adhere to quality management and WHS procedures and can identify anomalies while out in the field and adapt the field methodologies accordingly.
