Australian Runoff Quality: A Guide to Water Sensitive Urban Design

Engineers Australia



Australian Runoff Quality is an overview of current best practice in the management of urban stormwater within the context of total urban water cycle management and integration of management practices into the urban built form. As well as the issue of stormwater quality, major Australian urban areas have experienced raw water supply shortages in recent years, and potential synergies between stormwater quantity management/reuse and potable water use minimisation have been identified as a priority.

The manual provides procedures for estimating a range of urban stormwater contaminants. Design guidelines for commonly applied stormwater quantity and quality management practices. Procedures for estimating performance of these practices . Advice on integrated urban water cycle management practices.
