WSUD Maintenance Guidelines

Melbourne Water


Designed for asset managers and maintenance crews, the Guidelines provide information on the main system components and associated maintenance activities for: raingardens, tree pits, swales and permeable pavement.

 An inspection and maintenance schedule is provided for each asset, including typical frequencies for the different activities. An example inspection and maintenance form is also provided, which can be adapted for the specific needs of each council.

About the WSUD Maintenance Guidelines
They were developed to address a need identified by councils, to provide further information on the maintenance requirements for WSUD systems. The process of developing the guidelines involved a large contribution from councils through a number of workshops held earlier this year.
