Looking for research that can help with urban water management? Want it to be reputable? And easy to find? The answer is WRAP.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) recently commissioned an IWM Tool Scan to provide an up-to-date portfolio of tools available to assist practitioners with IWM project planning and delivery. Clearwater has partnered with the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA), to make the information in the tools scan available through their online Water Research Access Portal (WRAP), providing a one-stop website for planning and implementing IWM projects.
The Water Research Access Portal (WRAP) brings together a number of best-practice resources that practitioners can access in a comprehensive, user-friendly format. It aims to make information readily accessible to the water industry via a search functionality built on themes of national importance. The portal provides a single, easy to use gateway, and the resources are reputable and peer reviewed.
Along with the hundreds of useful documents from a range of contributors, we're in the process of adding a variety of tools to WRAP to support practitioners delivering IWM projects:
WRAP is a collaborative effort by a number of Australian research centres, government agencies, and industry, and is managed by the Water Services Association of Australia.
