Water Resource Management

Strategic planning of our water resource assets is critical for government and water utilities to be able to efficiently allocate funding for the improvement of infrastructure. At Tonkin Consulting, we preserve and manage water through innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions. Our dedicated team is highly skilled in providing solutions that meet the needs of a range of clients. Our team ensures that we undertake careful planning and investigation in order to optimise the “whole of life” cycle costs for the system.

At Tonkin Consulting, our team works closely with clients in both the scoping and implementation of planning studies and investigations. We adopt a partnership approach with our clients to ensure that the best outcomes are achieved for all stakeholders. We ensure consideration is given to design, construction and operational issues associated with systems design through the undertaking of planning studies and investigations.
