Dr Jon Fawcett
With experience in hydrogeology and soil water landscape studies related to salinity, soil water dynamics, groundwater dependent ecosystems (GDEs) and groundwater resource assessments, Jon's expertise is currently being utilised in assessing the potential impacts of CSG and mining activities on springs in QLD and Victoria.
As CDM Smith's Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem practice leader, Jon has led several investigations for Office of Groundwater Impact Assessment (OGIA) including extensive baseline spring surveys across the Surat Basin and subsequent conceptualisation of springs and risks using data collected from the baseline survey.
Jon provides specialist technical advice to project teams, expert panels and government agencies on the management of GDEs across Eastern Australia.
As a hydrogeologist, we often have to take imperfect data sets and provide useful interpretations. A key to success is the integration of complimentary data sets.
