Enabling the
transition to Water
Sensitive Cities

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,
Welcome to the latest update from the Clearwater teamIn this edition, we share three new multimedia resources, including the filming of last week's seminar on 'Stormwater and Health in the Urban Environment'.  Both videos capture some great questions and discussion from the evening.

We feature the Royal Park Stormwater Harvesting project case study, which is currently under threat as the State Government plans to expand East West Link. There is an opportunity to provide Public Comment on this proposal. 

We launch our new range of tailored training and workshops, which we deliver on request.  There are a number of upcoming industry events on offer, including a new seminar hosted by CRC for Water Sensitive Cities called The Economics of Water Sensitive Cities and Liveability.

Lastly, there are only 2 places left to attend next week's Stormwater Management: Principles and Practices course.  You better be quick!

WSUD: Stormwater management principles & practices
Wednesday 1 May 2013

This one day training course will introduce you to the concepts of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) and water sensitive cities, focusing on the WSUD approach to stormwater management. The session will cover the principles of stormwater management, focusing on how to set targets to allow for water conservation as well as flow and water quality management. It will emphasise basic principles of water quality treatment and flow management to guide selection and design of treatment systems. Design considerations, treatment performance and operation and maintenance will be discussed for a wide range of treatment systems.
