Clearwater News and Events

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,

Welcome to the last 2015 update from the Clearwater team.

Get in now and book your spot for one of our upcoming 2016 events. We're welcoming the new year in January with drinks and finger food. In February, learn about the basics of WSUD or jump straight into an advanced course on stormwater biofiltration. And we've got an exciting new tour planned for the month of March - stay tuned.

We've got a number of really interesting news articles below, in particular an update about the federal senate enquiry into stormwater - thanks to our colleague Andrew Allan.

And as usual, don't forget to check out our resources, which include some old favourites (What is WSUD video?) and some brand new ones. For example, we recently discovered great cartoons: they are a fantastic educational tool to get IWM concepts and ideas across. We encourage you to download the cartoons and use them as much as you can. 

And on that cartoonist note:
