STORMWATER AUSTRALIA ACTIVITIES AND MEMBERSHIP

Stormwater Australia is a national organisation that is supported by the membership of state-based incorporated associations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. The state SIAs may be contacted directly or through the Federal Office.

The State Associations enable local practitioners and the broader community to learn about available stormwater management and quality technologies, provide a platform which encourages interaction between the multiplicity of disciplines and parties engaged in our industry and encourage the development and understanding of new technologies. The state SIAs also provide opportunities for all interested practitioners and organisations to network within and across disciplines and to influence stormwater policy, legislation and industry guidelines at local and national levels.

Stormwater Australia holds seminars, conferences and workshops in all capital cities and regional centres. It produces the monthly 'Stormwater Australia Bulletin' on stormwater issues, publishes a website and promotes an annual Stormwater Excellence Awards program which highlights innovation, technology and sustainability in the stormwater industry and acknowledges the enterprise of practitioners and their clients.
