Our Team - David Pont

David Pont

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.
