The current La Niña weather system is expected to weaken during the second quarter of 2021 and then Australia's capital cities can again be expected to move back into water supply stress.

In January 2020, while  we faced the impacts of summer fires and drought, ABC produced this excellent video describing how we can manage and reuse urban stormwater to create more sustainable, liveable cities and waterways.

This is an excellent resource video for to share with industry and community cohorts who need an introduction to the topic.

The clip covers

  • How stormwater caputre can contribute to urban supply and reduce flooding
  • Rooftop gardens
  • Raingardens and biofilters -for stormwater treatment
