AWC worked with Mackay Regional Council to rehabilitate 720m of Little McCready’s Creek between Bucasia-Mackay Rd and Dawson Blvd. AWC engaged to ‘naturalise’ a waterway within a suburb of Mackay. The creek had been turned into a trapezoidal drain when the surrounding development was created. This resulted in a decrease in water quality, loss of habitat features and biodiversity, unnatural flow regimes and erosion.read more

Construction Environmental Management Plans Offer Natural Solutions
Our construction environmental management plans outline your construction project to minimise the effects on the environment and surrounding areas. AWC (Australian Wetlands Consulting) is the industry leader in ecological consulting, stormwater, wastewater, and catchment management. Discover the ways that we provide simple, natural solutions to complex problems.
Why Trust AWC Regarding Wetlands Consulting?
As climate change and runoff from urban and agricultural land use stress Australia’s vibrant marine ecosystem, we work with landowners and local and state governments to address water pollution.
- Our goal for the community is to offer natural solutions for pollution runoff. Naturally-based treatment technology is one of our team’s passions. We will redesign the landscape using plants, soil, and rocks and avoid treatment plants, pipes, and valves that can become an eyesore.
- Our commitment to working in partnership with the community to educate rather than dominate the discussion allows community members to drive the process of fixing water quality, helping us to engage long-term solutions.
- When you work with the environment in a symbiotic relationship as we do, the solutions are natural. Wetlands teem with vegetation, birds, animals, and microbes that treat water naturally. We empower landowners to create valuable wetlands to treat wastewater, which is one of many essential parts of managing in a global environment.
We are the team to turn to regarding water, environment, and ecological design. Whether we partner with the government or the local sector, we remain the industry leader in environmental consulting as well as stormwater, wastewater, and catchment management. Discover some issues that we can help our clients address:
- We provide preliminary site investigation in Australia that includes conducting a historical collection and analysis to determine if there are contamination or pollution issues on the land under consideration for development. A better understanding of the site enables us to support safer development without delays due to unforeseen problems.
- Our erosion and sediment control plans provide information in two parts. Erosion control minimises disturbed areas by reducing the amount of soil that can run off during rainstorms. We encourage stabilisation of the exposed soil, and sediment control will back up any runoff that escapes during erosion control.
- Catchment management in NSW will save landowners and communities money by reducing the costs of energy use and carbon emissions. We tackle water pollution at the source rather than through treatment. One example of our work is installing weather stations that can alert farmers regarding when to avoid using pesticides. Rainstorms may make it an unsuitable time to cover crops since runoff is more likely.
