Australia – operational dam management in South East Queensland

Published: 23 May 2019

Her Excellency Marion Derckx, the Dutch ambassador to Australia since February this year, visited the city of Brisbane last week. During the reception by Seqwater (organization for water availability and safety in South East Queensland) she visited the Wivenhoe dam also.

Ambassador Derckx got informered about the operational dam management of the Wivenhoe and other dams in this part of Australia. For this, Seqwater uses Delft-FEWS software, a collection of modules designed for building hydrological predictions and easily adapts to local situations. Deltares (the Netherlands) and Seqwater (Australia) work closely together on these predictions for the operational dam management.

Dutch Ambassador to Australia, Marion Derkx is visiting Seqwater.

Thanks to this cooperation, Deltares has had a permanent representative in Brisbane for some time now.
