Enabling the
transition to Water
Sensitive Cities

Dear Clearwater Newsletter Subscriber,
Welcome to the latest update from the Clearwater team.

In this edition, there are opportunities to provide feedback and input into:

Green roofs and walls are taking off with the launch of Australia's largest green roof research project and a new website for mapping green roofs, walls and urban agriculture sites.

Two new stormwater harvesting cases studies: Grant Street and the Royal Botanic Gardens were two sites visited on the recent WSUD City Tours designed for the Victorian Flood Conference.

Hot off the press in this month's Australian Water Management Review publication, is our article titled, Building capacity for Integrated Water Management - an industry perspective.

And lastly, a big thank you to everyone who completed our website evaluation survey.  Responses are being collated and winners will be notified shortly.

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.

Stormwater Harvesting: Concept & Design
Wednesday 5 June 2013

This one day training course, developed in partnership with Monash Water for Liveability, will introduce you with the concepts required to design an effective stormwater harvesting project. The workshop will feature insights into stormwater harvesting guidelines, latest research on the performance of stormwater treatment technologies, conceptual design and costs associated with stormwater harvesting systems. The course will include practical design exercises to develop the conceptual design of a stormwater harvesting system for a (i) greenfield and (ii) retrofit situation.
