Uni Taps into Water Work


THE University of Southern Queensland (USQ) is leading the world in research into creating sustainable water catchments.

In 2005 the university established the Australian Centre for Sustainable Catchments (ACSC) at its Toowoomba campus.

Its primary aim is to seek new solutions to the problems associated with the over-use of existing resources and the universal degradation of fresh water quality.

It delivers cutting-edge research that informs government policy and policy implementation.

The ACSC is one of seven research centres operated by USQ's academic research staff and postgraduate students, and headed by renowned climatologist Professor Roger Stone.

It combines world leading research and development in climate and meteorological science with engineering, remote sensing and surveying, hydrological modelling, economic modelling, catchment-scale modelling and rural research.

No other agency in Australia provides such integrated systems research and development in these fields. The ACSC has four main research groups. The Sustainable Water Use group focuses on issues concerning water quality in rivers and reservoirs, on urban stormwater runoff, on wastewater treatment and reuse, and on groundwater hydrodynamics and quality.

The Sustainable Landscapes group investigates the broader issues concerning the sustainable management of natural resources and connections with communities within our catchments.
