'Walk 4 Water' in 2014

Inside Infrastructure continues to support events that raise awareness of water quality and security issues in Australia and across the globe.  

In March, Inside Infrastructure will 'Walk 4 Water'.  This 10,000 step challenge is aimed at reminding participants of the journey that people from the world’s poorest communities (primarily women and children - in developing countries) undertake daily to collect water. Walk 4 Water is an annual fundraiser for WaterAid Australia which encourages participants to walk 10,000 steps a day for five days. Once signed-up, you'll receive a pedometer to help you count out your steps and your overall contribution to the cause. 

Walkers are challenged to raise money and start a conversation to increase awareness for the 768 million people living without access to safe water. WaterAid.org has a global reach and works in 27 countries worldwide; with WaterAid Australia currently funding projects across Papua New Guinea, Timor-Leste and Cambodia.

WaterAid’s Walk 4 Water will be held 17 – 21 March to coincide with World Water Day, Saturday 22 March.

Inside Infrastructure looks forward to participating in such a valuable and meaningful cause.  To register with the Inside Infrastructure team, send an email to: inside@insideinfrastructure.com.au prior to Friday 28th of February.

Inside Infrastructure celebrates the epic career of Lindsay Doherty

Lindsay Doherty has been working in South Australia’s water industry since the late 1950’s. Since then he has worked on many of our states major water infrastructure projects such as the Myponga Reservoir, Swan Reach/Stockwell pipeline, Kangaroo Creek Dam and the North South Interconnection System Project completed in early 2013.

It was fantastic to formally acknowledge Lindsay’s contribution to the water industry with over 50 family, friends and colleagues at a recent cocktail function in the Circulating Library (SA State Library).

We would take the opportunity to thank Dick Good, Andy Parsons, Borvin Kracman, Colin Bell and his son Kevin Doherty for delivering wonderful speeches giving great insight to the extent of Lindsay’s professional work, academic contribution and family life. Also thanks to David Wilkins for sending in a 'Telegram'.

 Some of the speech highlights included:

 “We recognise Lindsay as a giant in our industry – as much for his technical knowledge (which he selflessly shares) and the fact that Lindsay is pretty much the nicest bloke I have come across.” 

                                                                        Chris Hewitson

 

 “I learnt more about big pipes, concrete and dirt from you in one project than any engineer should…. your ability to surreptitiously enthuse and impart knowledge so clearly, is an art.”
