Dianne Elliotte formed AquaTech (Environmental Data Collection) Ltd in 2016 in response to a "gap in the market" of local experienced Environmental Technicians available to the general public.

Dianne's career began in the Hydrology section of the local council where she gained a passion and strive for collecting accurate and credible environmental information ranging from flow gauging, river and groundwater quality sampling to monitoring site maintenance and installation.  A 5 year stint in the Groundwater department ignited a curiosity for a misunderstood area of our environment.  During this time, Dianne assisted the Scientist in managing the groundwater quality and quantity monitoring networks which involved groundwater sampling, flow gauging, data management and processing and investigations around water quality issues.  

Dianne made the leap into team leadership and began to manage staff and eventually being in charge of the Environmental Data Collection team where she trained, managed and organised the team members.  This role involved many tasks including the procurement and management of instruments, liaising with Scientists and other colleagues to reach the end goal of high quality data collection carried out in a consistent, safe and timely manner.  

Dianne's vast and extensive experience (over 20 years in the industry) provides the client with the assurance that the data collected is repeatable, robust, and credible.
