Background and Relevance

A symposium on 2 August 2011 brought together international speakers, potential project partners and Australian-based experts in climate change and water quality. The symposium was an open forum that featured presentations on the current climate change science, the projected impacts of climate change on water quality and treatability for potable purposes and a discussion of potential public health issues. Details of the symposium are available to WaterRA members who have registered and logged in and can be found here.

A project arose out of meetings held in conjunction with this symposium which, in partnership with the Water Research Foundation to deliver a comprehensive assessment of the impacts of climate change on risks to reservoir water quality under a range of climatic scenarios.
