The Riverina and Murray Regional Organisation of Councils (RAMROC) which is made up of Albury and Griffith City Councils, Balranald, Berrigan, Carrathool, Hay, Leeton, Narrandera and Wentworth Shire Councils and Edward River, Federation, Murray River and Murrumbidgee Councils in the south west of NSW came together and engaged Talis to prepare a Regional Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy (the Strategy) to set the direction for the implementation of an efficient and sustainable waste management system across the region.
Large scale natural disasters such as fires, floods, tsunamis, severe storms and earthquakes can have a significant and lasting impact on a community however, forward planning for such an event can assist with the restorative process by providing certainty and direction. The importance of waste management planning prior to a disaster can limit the environmental, social and economic consequences of such an event.

The Shire of Upper Gascoyne contracted Talis Consultants to address flooding of the area's central community, which had caused substantial issues for the Shire including a pending legal action. The Talis team worked to develop an alternative drainage strategy; achieving a design that ensured that surface water flow across the boundary of the Shire’s land and into the private land would always remain less than pre-development flows, resolving the issues (including the legal action).
