Join Clearwater and Knox Council to experience a truly integrated approach to stormwater management.  

You will see innovative stormwater solutions - delivering for flood mitigation (quantity), waterway protection (quality) and stormwater use at the local level (conservation). The tour will visit award winning biofilters, constructed wetlands, and stormwater harvesting projects that are integrated into urban parklands.

These stormwater projects you will see are helping create aquatic habitats and recreational corridors that provide enhanced liveability outcomes and social connections with these places.

You will have an opportunity to learn about project planning, construction and maintenance and find out how the Knox Stormwater Department has built capacity for Integrated Water Management within their organisation.


The tour will include:

  • Visits to two multi-objective projects in a built up urban activity centre
  • Visits to two constructed wetland projects in bushland reserves
  • Discussion about key challenges, successes, learnings and current programs associated with each site.
  • A sit down lunch at a local restaurant providing the opportunity for discussion and networking.


Suitable for anyone involved in sustainable water planning or asset maintenance, including developers, planners, architects, environment and maintenance staff.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Course completion will contribute CPD points to programs with the following organisations: Nursery and Garden Industry Association (NGIA), Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), Engineers Australia (EA) and Planning Institute of Australia (PIA).
