Enabling the
transition to Water
Sensitive Cities

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,
Happy New Year! Welcome to the first update from the Clearwater team for 2013.  In this edition we launch our new 6 month training and events calendar. It's shaping up to be a busy 6 months. 
We have designed two WSUD City Walking Tours as part of the 8th Victorian Flood Conference and launched a brand new Integrated Water Management tour venturing to the City of Geelong.  We are also developing two new maintenance-focused courses, and back by popular demand is our Hot Topics series to be delivered in March/April. 
There are also a number of industry events approaching, including 'Traumatic Landscapes - Floods' event held on the 31st of this month.
As an inspiring start to 2013, we thought we would share a fantastic video to help you visualise what we are all working towards: a Water Sensitive City.
