Rockwater Projects

Numerical Modelling

Representative Projects

  • Predicting the impacts of sulphate-enriched groundwater from the Beenup mineral sand mine, near Augusta, on local streams and rivers
  • Determining the longevity of geothermal bores, and the impacts of injection, at various locations within the Perth Basin
  • Developing groundwater models for numerous water supply projects across Western Australia as part of hydrogeological assessments required by the Department of Water to obtain licenses to take groundwater
  • Modelling changes to the saltwater interface from planned groundwater extraction, Dampier Peninsula
  • Predicting the nature of final mine voids at numerous projects in the mid-west, Goldfields and Kimberley regions
  • Assessing the fate of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorous) from the Water Corporation's wastewater treatment plants at Esperance, Geraldton, Broome, Exmouth, amongst other locations
  • Assessing groundwater changes as a result of urbanisation at locations including Armadale, Jandakot, Jurien and Karnup-Baldivis
  • Predicting groundwater inflows and dewatering requirements for open-cut and underground mines throughout Western Australia, aiding in optimal dewatering management
  • Assessing the impacts of water disposal using injection bores and evaporation ponds at dewatering projects throughout Western Australia, including Forrestania, Black Swan, Coolgardie
  • Predicting the fate of seepage from tailing storage facilities at numerous mine-sites across Western Australia
  • Numerical modelling to assess the pumping capacity and borefield layout in palaeochannel aquifers supplying water for mining projects at Windimurra, Wiluna, Leonora, Agnew, Pinjin, Kanowna, Paddington, Coolgardie and Westonia
  • Peer review of groundwater models, including the South West Aquifer Modelling System, and provision of feedback and recommendations
  • Groundwater modelling to access the effects of managed aquifer recharge of storm water via injection bores on the superficial aquifer at Hartfield Park, Kalamunda
  • Groundwater modelling to assess the dewatering requirements of a proposed coal mine and the effects on nearby nature reserves in the northern Perth Basin
