Rebecca Ferguson

Rebecca has over 14 years of professional experience, specialising in integrated urban water management and catchment management, gained from working within Local and State Government.

Rebecca embraces a multi-disciplinary and inter-agency approach to project delivery at all levels including, federal, state and local government, the private sector, community groups, universities, tafe and schools.

She was a key player in the policy change that was brought about through the development and implementation of the award winning Waterwise Bayswater Strategy, the first of its kind for local government.

She was an integral part of industry leading on-ground projects such as the rehabilitation of the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary nutrient stripping wetland, which diverted drain baseflows from the Bayswater Brook to secure a sustainable water source for the wetland whilst eliminating the need to pump groundwater into the wetland to maintain water levels. She has also undertaken multiple living stream and micro-wetland projects through the Drainage for Liveability Program, delivered with Water Corporation and DWER.

Rebecca has extensive experience in environmental monitoring, including developing and undertaking surface water, groundwater and soil sampling monitoring programs, data analysis, reporting and management.

Rebecca was the recipient of the AWA Award – 2019 WA Young Water Professional of the Year.
