Lachlan Riverine Working Group responsive site

Close

Overview

The Lachlan Riverine Working Group (LRWG) acts in an advisory capacity to manage environmental water in the Lachlan valley, assisting with the implementation of the Lachlan Environmental Watering Management Plan (LEWMP) and Lachlan Annual Environmental Water Plan, to release volumes of water into rivers, creeks and wetlands, thereby benefitting the environment, birds, fish, frogs and humans who live in the catchment area.

Membership of the LRWG is comprised of representatives of the Lachlan Catchment Management Authority, which provides administrative support and inter-agency liaison, the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, the NSW Office of Water, Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries), State Water Corporation, and Aboriginal, community (including consumptive water users) and landholder representatives. To remain independent, the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder, as part of the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, has an observer role.

The LRWG has received recognition for its work, as both a finalist in the national Banksia Environmental Awards 2012 and recipient of The NSW Green Globe Award 2012.

Digital Tsunami developed a sophisticated, responsive and technically advanced web presence for the organisation, implementing an interface by Sydney design house, Fresco Creative.

The new site features interactive Google maps overlaid with location markers for: catchment areas, rivers and creeks, weirs and dams, fishways; nationally and regionally significant wetlands; as well as past and current watering events. These maps enable the plotting of water courses and the setting of irregular catchment areas, to dynamically demonstrate the impact of the water releases upon both farming land and the environment.

Dynamic ‘accordion’ panels are utilised for many pages, including the glossary and publications; sortable tabs enable segmentation of FAQ, news items and videos; on larger screens a full-screen vectored background graphic in visible; reverse chronological order is applied to the newsletter archive; and all text, images, documents and videos are managed by a hierarchically structured, sophisticated and easy-to-use WordPress content management system (CMS).

As with all new Digital Tsunami sites, it is built with responsive design so that it displays appropriately on platforms from desktops to all handheld devices.

For providing a reliable, fast, and well maintained hosting service for business websites, I recommend Andrew and his company Digital Tsunami. The technical support given has been above and beyond, their hosting the fastest I have experienced, and is very well maintained with no issues.

Andrew certainly bends over backwards for his new and current clients, and I can tell he genuinely cares about providing nothing short of an outstanding service.

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.

The services provided included the registration of our domain name, establishment of our email accounts, and development & hosting of our website, were all executed rapidly and effectively. We also appreciate the service of upgrading our list of 150 shelf company names (in Chinese characters and English) every 2 weeks.

We valued the high level of creative design provided by Digital Tsunami, both for the website and the corporate identity.
