The Modelling Group is involved in various events, such as regional meetings and conferences throughout the year.
The Modelling Group holds a number of regional events throughout the country each year. View the Water New Zealand events page to find the latest Modelling event in your region.
Past presentations from the regional meetings can be found here.
If you have any feedback or suggestions for regional meetings, please contact the Modelling Group Liaison.
