Why Groundwater Matters in the Infrastructure World

In partnership with Engineering New Zealand and kindly sponsored by GHD, ALGA Bay of Plenty presents a series of presentations discussing the importance of groundwater in relation to infrastructure. 

Why Groundwater Matters in the Infrastructure World

Presentations include:

Geotechnical and Hydrogeological Properties of River Stopbanks in the Bay of Plenty Region: Low-lying plains of the Bay of Plenty region are susceptible to flooding. Stopbanks and floodwalls have been used on the edges of major rivers as one method to help control the effects of these flood events. This will be a high-level discussion co-presented by Bay of Plenty Regional Council alongside GHD in which the topographical, hydrological and geotechnical challenges of maintaining sound flood defences will be discussed based on site specific projects within the BOP region. (Speakers: Peter Hay, BOPRC and Conrad Jenkins, GHD)

Data Collection to Support Planning and Design of Future Stormwater Upgrades: Use of Internet of Things (IoT) to understand site specific climate and groundwater conditions and the influence of these on stormwater infrastructure performance in coastal communities. (Speakers: Anthony Kirk, GHD and Kelvin Hill, Western Bay of Plenty District Council).

Construction in Saturated, Peat-Rich Materials – Implications of Dewatering on Infrastructure: Groundwater inflow management for residential and commercial development areas, focusing on managing the potential risks presented by ground settlement and acid sulphate soils on infrastructure in the North Island, New Zealand.  (Speakers: Jade McConchie, GHD and Zoe Pattinson, GHD).
