Water Resource Managers monitor and analyse water quality and availability, creating reports and recommendations on how it should best be managed and protected. They are predominantly interested in it's qualities in relation to human consumption and sanitation. Employment opportunities usually exist at all levels of government resource management and policy development and with private water management organisations; however opportunities also exist in the agricultural and mining industries. Most of the environmental science and management disciplines prepare graduates for entry level positions in this field. It should be noted though that post graduate qualifications are always well regarded and some universities offer specialist water management courses.
