Water Resource Associates

WRA Partners

The experience of our Partners covers hydrometric network design, instrumentation, data capture and processing, flood estimation and forecasting, low flow and drought studies, hydropower operation, modelling of complex conjunctive use water resource system, arid zone hydrology and wetland hydrology. WRA has extensive experience in water quality studies and modelling. A number of our Partners are experienced project managers.

We also specialise in producing high quality software for the water industry, either as bespoke applications or as products for general use. Software products include a catchment model, conjunctive use water resource simulation models, a river water quality model, a hydrological simulation model for climate change, chart digitising software and liming control software for acid rivers and lakes.

River and reservoir water quality modelling, catchment hydrochemistry, acidification.
Has over 35 years experience of water quality and pollution issues including the development of dynamic, stochastic and planning models. Applications include simulation of catchments, rivers and reservoirs with environmental impact assessment of effluent discharges, land use change, acid deposition and non-point source pollution.
