Auricht Projects was engaged by the Office of Water Science in 2014 to facilitate an expert workshop and lead the development of a Technical Report for the Independent Expert Scientific Committee (IESC) on ‘Modelling water related ecological responses to coal seam gas extraction and coal mining’. The Technical Report was  endorsed by the IESC at its’ November 2014 meeting.

Outputs from this work informed the development of IESC Information Guidelines for proponents preparing coal seam gas and large coal mining development proposals outlining ‘the information considered necessary to enable the IESC to provide robust scientific advice to government regulators on the water-related impacts of coal seam gas and large coal mining development proposals‘.
