WILL WRIGHT Senior Geotechnical and Groundwater Engineer Principal

.

.

.

.

Contamination assessment at coal fired power station. Review of the likely contamination migration paths and locations, supervision of drilling, well installation and sampling. Assessment of the extent of contamination and potential for off-site migration and development of a management strategy including monitoring requirements. Proposed effluent disposal site at Anna Bay. Supervision of drilling, well installation and groundwater sampling. Assessment of groundwater flows and existing groundwater quality. Field supervision and assessment of pumping tests for the basement dewatering of a proposed multi storey building. Hydrogeological study, proposed landfill, Minimbah (Great Lakes). Supervision of drilling and permeability testing and preliminary assessment of the site suitability.

Proposed sludge lagoon at Castlemaine. Three dimensional modelling was undertaken to estimate leachate leakage from a proposed sludge storage lagoon as well as the corresponding level of groundwater mounding in an underlying aquifer. Proposed golf course development, Harrington. Two dimensional plan and cross section modelling was used to assess the interaction between groundwater and surface water of artificial lakes proposed to be used for irrigation of the golf course Dewatering of a proposed tunnel through sand, Perth. The modelling was required to estimated required spear locations, pumping rates and the drawdown profile which was needed to estimate likely settlement of nearby buildings. Cross section transient modelling of seepage through an elevated mining pond constructed from sand. Assessment of flows around buried structures to determine the potential for piping and development of methods to reduce the risk of piping. Application of municipal effluent to a coastal sand dune at Hat Head. The modelling was used to estimate the level of groundwater mounding below the dunes and the component of effluent flow into an inland creek. Plan modelling of effluent application near a water supply aquifer at Tomago. The modelling included assessment groundwater mounding as well as transient contaminant transport modelling, considering advection and dispersion mechanisms, to estimate the future migration of the effluent plume. Rapid drawdown assessment of the existing Hunter River levee bank around Maitland. The modelling was required to estimate the depth of saturation into the levee bank based on a 50 year flood hydrograph. Seepage modelling of a large earth dam at Aldridges Creek. The purpose of the modelling was to estimate pore pressures for stability analyses and flow rates through the clay core to design an adequate drainage filter. Research into rainfall recharge and beach face boundary effects at a coastal dune aquifer at Hat Head. The work was carried out for a M.Eng.Sc thesis and involved transient cross section and

plan modelling to replicate measured groundwater heads.
