The 2018 Technical Hydrology Workshop will be held in Palmerston North from Monday 05 March to Friday 09 March 2018.

The theme for this workshop is Sediment Monitoring & Reporting.

This workshop provides a unique opportunity for field hydrologists and industry suppliers to network, learn from each other and promote their products to representatives from all over New Zealand. More specifically, we encourage and anticipate participation from leading local government, crown research agencies, water utility providers, hydro power generators, private industry groups and individuals. All practitioners with an interest in the profession of field hydrology are welcome. It is an opportunity for field hydrologists to gather and learn more about their profession as well as share knowledge and experiences from their working environment or projects they may be involved with other field hydrologists and other interested professionals.


Visit the 2018 Technical Workshop website for further details and registration information






General information

Apart from at the Annual Symposium, the NZHS generally runs 2 workshops a year, often in association with other groups or organisations. Workshops are a great way of sharing knowledge and discussing current hydrological issues outside the NZHS annual symposium. Topics have included coastal aquifer management, hydrology and wetlands, hydrological archives, etc.

NZHS workshops are organised when members identify a need for a forum. The need could include general dissemination of information, the discussion of topical issues and/or the need to find solutions to hydrology-related problems. Financial support is available (subject to Executive approval) to NZHS members who require assistance to develop and/or run a workshop.

If you wish to suggest a topic, run a workshop, or need more information, please contact:
Society administration.
