This event is part of the Clearwater / Living Rivers Partnership arrangement, which aims to engage with industry and deliver a range of capacity building activities linked to knowledge created from the Living Rivers projects. 


Join Alan West from the City of Kingston, Melbourne Waters Living Rivers Team and Clearwater to hear about Kingston Council’s industry leading planning approach to stormwater management and view the new exciting multi-functional integrated stormwater improvement project at Edithvale Recreation Reserve.

As part of this site visit you will get to hear about:

  • Kingston’s recently developed Stormwater In-Lieu Contributions planning mechanism which is based on their detailed Integrated water cycle strategy, Municipal master planning and prioritized capital program.
  • An introduction to Kingston’s $4M Edithvale Recreation Reserve stormwater treatment & reuse project including how the Council has overcome some very unique planning, design and construction challenges.
  • The ongoing partnership approach between Council and Melbourne Water including strategic and financial support via the Living Rivers program.
  • A guided tour around the impressive Edithvale project which incorporates a complex flood mitigation solution for a 70 Ha catchment, a 6m deep pumping station, a 800sqm bio-retention system and over 1.3 million litres of storage capacity for reuse.

A case study of Kingston’s WSUD Masterplan is available (see side-bar).

Please note that participants will be responsible for organising their own travel to the site.
