John is the National Technical Leader, Hydrogeology at EMM Consulting Pty Limited. Previously he was Manager Hydrogeology with the Upstream Gas Division of AGL Energy. John has more than 40 years’ experience, mainly associated with unconsolidated sediment and sedimentary basin hydrogeology.  He joined AGL in early 2010 after spending more than 12 years with consultants Parsons Brinckerhoff in many water resource and contaminated site project roles. Between 2005 and 2010 John worked with Sydney Catchment Authority to manage and deliver the NSW Government’s groundwater investigation and borefield development projects for emergency drought water supplies for Sydney under the Metropolitan Water Plan. While at AGL, numerous scientific groundwater studies were completed to support coal seam gas developments in the Southern Coalfields, Hunter Valley and at Gloucester. These ranged from basin-wide studies to complex drilling and monitoring programs, and produced water management projects. His role also provided strategic advice to AGL on water policy, and was responsible for water regulatory negotiations and associated compliance reporting.
