About The New Zealand Hydrological Society (NZHS)
NZHS is a non-profit organisation founded in 1961.
Our mission is to further the science of hydrology and its application to the understanding and management of New Zealand's water resources.
We are a mix of New Zealand and overseas individuals and subscribing organisations with an interest in water and its wise use. We are scientists, technicians, consultants, hydrologists, engineers, biologists, climatologists, teachers, students, resource managers, policy makers, and others.
About Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium (HWRS)
HWRS is one of Australia’s largest events devoted to hydrology, water engineering and related areas in water resources. The conference series is run by Engineers Australia's National Committee on Water Engineering.
The Symposium has a long history as Australia’s pre-eminent symposium and hydrological research conference and provides a forum to discuss emerging and innovative approaches for practicing engineers and scientists. The 37th HWRS (2016) will bring together a large audience of academics, government officials, industry practitioners, experts and students.
About IPENZ Rivers Group Symposium
A joint technical group of the Institution of Professional Engineers NZ (IPENZ) and Water New Zealand (formerly the NZWWA). The Rivers Group is in its sixth year and we are continuing to evolve to best deliver value to our members and the NZ rivers community.
We are a technical interest group for people who are passionate about the successful management of river systems across New Zealand. Our members include engineers, geomorphologists, hydrologists, ecologists, scientists, planners, managers and others who want to work together to create and manage river systems that future generations can be proud of. This is an incredibly complex challenge that often involves balancing competing interests and demands to achieve outcomes that will have lasting effects that shape the way we live.
