  since then has worked predominantly as an engineer in Local Government with
  short stints in the asphalt and mining industries.

  In this time, Martyn has been recognised for his work with sustainable asset and
  environment issues, specifically with road construction, traffic management, water
  conservation and street lighting as well as more recently with resource recovery in
  the waste industry.

Martyn lists the highlights of his career to date as being the Premier’s Water Conservation Award for the Mosman Park Water Cycle Project, the ongoing development of the standard Guidelines for Subdivisional Development adopted by the Department of Planning Land and Heritage as the WA minimum standard and his work with Smart technologies to improve the community experience.

  Mike Wynne, Founder, Tunnelwell

  Tunnelwell® founder Michael Wynne is a hydraulic engineer and plumber of 40+
  years experience. As a designer and installer of stormwater storage systems he
  was continually frustrated by the lack of robust products available in the market
  which would meet the long-term performance lifecycle that infrastructure owners
  have every right to expect. So, he decided to do something about it.

  Tunnelwell® is the result; a unique concept for infiltration of rainwater runoff or
                                    effluent disposal into the natural soil with efficient long-term performance.
