Stormwater Harvesting: Concept & Design

Friday 28th Oct 2011 9:00AM - 5:00PM

Karstens Conference Rooms
123 Queen Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000

Registrations are now closed

Clearwater's latest training course is a one day workshop that will familiarise you with the concepts required to design an effective stormwater harvesting project. You will learn about the latest research on stormwater pollutants and how to evaluate appropriate usage and risk according to current guidelines. You will gain on understanding of how to plan for and apply technologies for stormwater collection, treatment, and storage.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the issue of scale (lot, street and precinct) in the design of stormwater harvesting solutions. The course will include a practical design exercise to develop the conceptual design of a stormwater harvesting system for a (i) greenfield and (ii) retrofit situation.

**This session will build on Clearwater’s Stormwater Harvest and Reuse course by providing the latest research into stormwater technologies and conceptual designs as recommended by the Centre for Water Sensitive Cities at Monash University.

Prof Ana Deletic, Dr David McCarthy - Monash University / Centre for Water Sensitive Cities

What you can expect from this workshop:

  • An in-depth understanding of the latest research on stormwater pollutants including nutrients, pathogens and persistent chemicals
  • Increased knowledge of research on appropriate technologies to treat stormwater for resuse
  • An introduction to the latest conceptual design solutions for lot, street and precinct stormwater projects
  • An opportunity to apply design knowledge to practical case studies

Ideal for environmental planners, designers and engineers from government or commercial organisations needing an introduction to stormwater concept and design.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided
