The recent  Source 2012 conference attracted 180 delegates who heard from a range of speakers about how  Source models can be used to assist river and waterway management. Source has been adopted as Australia’s national hydrological modelling platform so it will be important for all of us working in natural resources management to be aware of the power of the models and how they can be used to underpin decision making. If you would like to learn more about Source, or  review the presentations,  many of them are now  available on the e-Water website.

A new Source Community of Practice has also been established to share knowledge and assist people to apply Source models to ‘real life’ river management issues.  If you would like  to be involved in the Source Community of Practice please email:

e-Water also invites you to keep  informed of their not-for profit work by subscribing to regular email updates or by connecting with them on Facebook or Twitter through this link.
