Hello everyone and welcome to the December edition of ‘Keep Things Flowing’, the monthly newsletter presented by Storm Water Consulting.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our readers, clients, friends and colleagues a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holidays. We have enjoyed the year that was 2017 and are looking forward to what 2018 brings.

Storm Water Consulting will be closed from Wednesday 20th December 2017 to Friday 5th January 2018, with the office reopening on Monday 8th January 2018.

In this month’s newsletter we will review the year that was and take a look back at some of the major events from 2017.


QUDM Training Course

Over the past few months we announced that Storm Water Consulting would be partnering with IPWEA and Grant Witheridge of Catchments and Creeks to present training courses for the newly released Queensland Urban Drainage Manual (QUDM 2017). We are pleased to update you all that earlier this month the first QUDM training course was held in Brisbane. The turnout was great and all participants enjoyed the day learning about the new Queensland Urban Drainage Manual.

Registrations are still open, please contact our office for further information and registration details for the course. Private training courses are also available for larger group bookings.
