Waterways and ports are often located within or adjacent to environmentally sensitive areas including Ramsar wetlands and Marine Parks. Dredging approvals require compliance with stringent environmental conditions. Compliance is often met through items such as development and implementation of environmental management plans, water quality and seagrass monitoring programs, and ongoing sediment analysis. Swash can also assist with beneficial reuse projects, such as island sand nourishment and vegetation projects for migratory bird habitat.

Each waterway in Australia is unique, but many share similar issues. These issues include maintaining navigational channels and berths; sustainable boating (congestion); swing moorings and waterway zoning to meet the needs of the many, various waterway (and adjacent landside) users and agencies.

  • Recreational boating analysis

  • Sustainable boating plans

  • Sand bypass

  • Dredging

  • Navigational aids and swing moorings

  • Waterway zoning

  • Hydrographic surveys
