The draft of EPA guidance for urban stormwater management is currently open for feedback. The document provides guidance for designing systems to manage urban stormwater run-off from new development across urban areas in Victoria. While the guidance is not a compliance document it adds to the knowledge from previous guidance and planning requirements.
The document supports the planning and design of new urban stormwater management systems and focuses on
*highlighting the risk to waterways and bays caused by sealed (impervious) surfaces
*providing general objectives and information to support risk assessment and minimisation
*explaining stormwater management for Victorian communities
To find out how to structure your feedback on the draft guidance you can visit a background information consultation guide document.
If you have any questions you are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 December 2020.
