Integrating company-wide water stewardship and risk mitigation solutions

Why us?
Our methodology provides full risk assessments within and outside the fence of operations, a structured approach to prioritizing water initiatives, and solutions based on meaningful risk metrics and actual cost savings.

Dr. Anthony Turton
Environmental Advisor
Anthony Turton holds two professorships: one in the Centre for Environmental Management at the University of Free State and another as part of the UNESCO Chair in Groundwater Management at the University of Western Cape. He is a founding director of the Ecological Engineering Institute of Africa where he is mainstreaming solutions, most notably with the development of an engineered wetland that is being patented. His current work is in the mining sector where he specialises in mitigating the risks arising from the uranium contamination of Johannesburg and acid mine drainage (AMD), and has pioneered the concept of Closure Mining that makes a business case for the rehabilitation of mining-impacted landscapes. He is working in various teams developing next generation solutions to the assurance of supply constraints emerging in housing estates and commercial property. An element of this is providing a holistic water services capability using disruptive technology for both potable and waste water. Dr Turton is also a Trustee of the Water Stewardship Council of Southern Africa and the co-founder of the South African Water and Energy Forum (SAWEF), which introduced the notion of the Water-Energy-Food Nexus to the public domain. He is the past Vice President of the International Water Resource Association (IWRA) and a past Deputy Governor of the World Water Council. He currently serves as Editor of the international journal “Water Policy” and sits on the editorial boards of various technical journals. He has recently been appointed to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as a Contributing Member to the Water and Energy Group Subcommittee on Innovative Water Conservation, Reuse and Recovery Technologies for a term ending in June 2019.
