Use of WSUD 'source control' practices to manage floodwaters in urbanising landscapes: developed and ultra-developed catchments

J.Argue, D.Pezzaniti / Centre for Water Management & Reuse, University of South Australia


John R Argue and David Pezzaniti's paper presented an economic case for implementing WSUD. This paper addresses a need expressed by many local government practitioners working in this field - change is difficult for organisations and benefits need to be demonstrated and quantified. Whilst the focus is often on the environmental benefits of WSUD, it makes sense to also pay attention to demonstrating these hydrologic and significant economic benefits from WSUD.
