RMCG assists government, water corporations, catchment management authorities, industry, communities and farmers to plan and implement effective water management solutions in both urban and rural environments.
Our team of engineers, scientists and economists provide a broad range of expertise from strategic analysis and policy development to design of practical, on-ground solutions.
We provide advice on waterway management (rivers, estuaries and wetlands) and management of water for the environment; irrigation and drainage policy and design; water resource management, water trading and risk mitigation; recycled water and organic waste management; cost benefit analysis and business case development for investment; and water pricing and regulatory submissions.
