eWater CRC has launched a new software tool that takes an integrated management approach to stormwater. Urban Developer enables users to examine, design and assess how a system based on water-sensitive design principles will operate. It challenges the conventional silo approach to the different streams of the urban water cycle of stormwater, waste water, water supply and re-use options. Users can see the relationship between inputs, outputs and amounts in store. It highlights the potential interactions of water supplies from reservoirs, stormwater, rainwater tanks and wastewater as well as the impact of water efficient appliances.
