29 May 2018

The annual Floodplain Management Conference is Australia’s most respected flood risk management event. This year the conference theme is “Waterways of Success: Developing flood resilience in our communities” so experts from Royal HaskoningDHV have been asked to showcase their latest projects including the important new flash flood prediction service which is being used by the city of Parramatta.

Flash® , FISH and Lizard for Parramatta

Our new flood prediction service, Flash®, has become a key element in the city of Parramatta’s plans to improve their flood resilience and their Flood Information System Hub (FISH). Operating on the cloud-based Lizard platform and using real-time and forecast weather data to inform 3Di modelling, Flash® can predict flooding and provide early warning to government, local residents and businesses.

Conference delegates can find out more during Ben Patterson and Herman de Jonge’s discussion of the project on 31 May. Royal HaskoningDHV is also exhibiting at Booth 7.

Sharing latest news

In addition, Ben Patterson will deliver a presentation around ‘Effects of ARR2016 and Rating Curve Changes on Design Flood Conditions for the Hunter River’ whilst Nick Lewis will speak about the challenges of flow and flood management in construction.

Royal HaskoningDHV will also welcome colleagues and friends to the gala dinner which it is sponsoring.

The conference is taking place 29 May - 01 June 2018.
