Tuesday 19th April 2011 This workshop will introduce key steps to consider when scoping a sustainable water project integrating stormwater harvesting and water reuse. You will follow a stormwater harvest and reuse case study to highlight the considerations for water demand, supply, storage, treatment and project evaluation. Interactive activities will focus on tools for calculating yields, storage needs and irrigation schedules. Relevant legislation, guidelines and risk assessment procedures for stormwater and waste water reuse use are also covered. Click here for more information or to register now
