Work commenced in January 2013, with high-level consultation to determine functional groups based on occupations. The functional groups have guided the work with the assistance of technical reference groups (TRGs). The TRGs have assisted GSA to analyse the occupations in each stream. The analysis has been used to validate and develop the existing quali cations. GSA is working to identify any gaps. Streams identi ed include: • Source; • Networks; • Treatment; • Hydrography; • Trade waste. Bene ts for the water industry include: • Defnes and clarifes roles within the water industry nationally; • Assists with building the case for expansion and improved representation in the ANZSCO codes and for data collection; • Recognises the skills required of individuals responsible for the provision of drinking water and treatment of sewage in Australian communities; • Highlights gaps for further development and improvement of the national water training package.

"This advanced bio-treatment process, unveiled on World Environment Day, is a wonderful example of innovative thinking to solve today's pressing environmental issues" said NSW Sport and Recreation Minister Stuart Ayres. "Not only does it process contaminated water cleanly and ef ciently, it does so at a much reduced cost compared to traditional commercial treatment methods." Diver Data Loggers have become an industry standard in the measurement of water level and salinity in groundwater and surface water applications. The pressure transducer, temperature sensor, salinity sensor, data logger and battery are integrated into a single robust device. Water Level Data Loggers Water Level Sensors CBS Compact Bubbler Level Sensor Low Maintenance, low power with an intelligent pump strategy, no pump maintenance or lubrication required. SDI-12, 4-20mA. RLS Radar Level Sensor Contactless and energy- efficient water level measurement. Flat antenna and inconspicuous design housing using diving bell principal. 35m range SDI-12, 4-20mA, RS-485. Water Quality Instruments The HL4 is the next generation multiparameter water quality instrument from Hydrolab. Its reliability, ease-of-use, and metadata produce water quality data you can trust. Sensors include; Temp, Conductivity, pH, ORP, LDO (Luminescent Dissolved Oxygen), Depth and self Cleaning Turbidity Aqualab Scientific is recognised as a leader in the environmental industry, supplying quality brands that customers have known and trusted for years.
