Our Dubbo team is organised around key disciplines including strategy and evaluation, economics and agriculture, environmental services, planning and project management.

The team is particularly focused on improving the sustainable management of natural resources, effectiveness of industry and government programs, and sustainability and competitiveness of rural and regional Australia.

At the local level and more broadly across the state of New South Wales, our networks are extensive and we communicate successfully with farmers, researchers, investors, policy makers, politicians and conservationists. Our experience over many years, both as GHD and previously as Hassall & Associates, means we understand the industry in which our clients operate and the local landscape in which their work is undertaken.

Clients value our unique position to advise them, being grounded in agriculture yet well skilled in, and able to consider, broader natural resource management issues.

Our team provides a wide range of services to both public and private sector clients, with particular experience in:

  • Strategy and evaluation
  • Economics and agriculture
  • Project management
  • Water and wastewater

Dubbo groundwater supply and drought management strategy


GHD provided hydrogeological and groundwater modelling services to develop a numerical model of part of the Upper Macquarie alluvial aquifer, and evaluation of alternative groundwater extraction options for sustainable water supply to the city of Dubbo.

The Macquarie River at Dubbo, in central-west New South Wales, is a major source of recharge to groundwater in the underlying alluvial aquifers, and both the river and groundwater are vital sources of water to the city of Dubbo. GHD services will allow Dubbo City Council to choose the best pumping scenarios between various bore locations and the river to minimise and share these impacts in the most equitable way.

Greengrove Effluent Irrigation Scheme


The Greengrove Effluent Irrigation Scheme is Dubbo City Council’s practical and far-sighted response to serious waste disposal, environmental and urban issues following toxic algae blooms in the Murray-Darling Basin.

Dubbo City Council engaged GHD (in conjunction with the NSW Department of Commerce, NSW Department of Energy and Utilities & Sustainability) as the head contractor responsible for constructing and commissioning the scheme. The scheme consists of 208ha of centre pivot irrigation, related infrastructure and paddock preparation. Our team also has an ongoing role in the scheme’s operation and management.
