Community Water Technician
John’s role is as an on-ground team member conducting routine and non-routine operation maintenance activities of the water and sewerage infrastructure within remote Aboriginal communities.
Cameron has a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering with first class honours from Griffith University. Cameron has experience in GIS and water management. He has extensive knowledge on constructed wetlands for wastewater treatments and received an award for his thesis on ‘wetland soil amendments for phosphorus removal’. He represented Griffith university at the environmental engineering student awards night. Growing up on the northern rivers region of NSW has given Cameron an appreciation of the environment and the value of maintaining this valuable resource for future generations, and hopes his knowledge can be put to good use while working with Ecoteam. Cameron designs on-site sewage systems and performs contaminated land assessments.

Senior Scientist and Designer
David has thirteen years experience in management of water businesses, of catchment and estuary management plans, and in design and construction of larger stormwater and wastewater management systems as part of a broader focus on catchment and waterway health. His work has focused on the use of natural systems using ecotechnology to achieve sustainable results at lower cost. The well-monitored success of three substantial wastewater wetlands in northern NSW in achieving very low outlet concentrations of pollutants has also informed his design approach to stormwater systems which are more difficult to monitor and assess.
