Water quality research centre for WA

Wednesday, 01 June, 2005


Curtin University of Technology and the Western Australian Water Corporation have combined to establish a water research centre at the university.

Corporation chief executive officer Jim Gill says the Curtin Water Quality Research Centre would provide a substantial boost for water research in general and water quality in particular. "This new centre will be internationally recognised and will become a major contributor in a very practical way to improved water supplies, both in Western Australia, Australia and overseas," he said.

Curtin Vice-Chancellor Professor Lance Twomey said the management and development of water resources would continue to be a major area of importance for the Western Australian community. "Curtin is continuing its tradition of participating in innovative alliances that make a significant contribution to the wider community. I am sure the centre will have a lasting impact on the future of water resources and supply in this state."
