Stormwater Management in a Water Sensitive City.
To harness the potential of stormwater to overcome water shortages, reduce urban temperatures, and improve waterway health and the landscape of Australian cities.
blueprint2012 builds on the previous version released in January 2011 and subsequent and ongoing discussions and workshops with our industry partners of the Cities as Water Supply Catchments Research Program throughout 2011.
This document now also includes insights and recommendations emanating from research across multiple disciplines undertaken by the Cities as Water Supply Catchments research team in 2011. The blueprint outlines approaches to urban stormwater management that can be adopted today to commence the transition of our cities to Water Sensitive Cities.
