Webinar: Sensor and Social Networks Enabled Adaptive Water Management

Ringarooma Case Study, Tasmania, Australia

This webinar will address the key outcomes of the Ringarooma project:
• Real-time monitoring and improved irrigator understanding of stream flow and water quality behavior.
• Confidence developed in linking management actions (water extractions and releases) to stream flow.
• Coordinated actions led to reduced incidence of very low flows and regulatory restrictions on extractions.
• Better production and environmental outcomes.
