Aquarevo is a 42 ha urban development site located 38 km south east of central Melbourne. The former wastewater treatment plant site is to be developed through a joint venture between South East Water and Villawood Properties.

The Aquarevo development presents an exciting opportunity to synthesise and apply the latest research from the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities for use in practice.

This document presents a synthesis of knowledge, ideas and discussions on creating a water sensitive Aquarevo under three broad themes:

  1. urban planning and design;
  2. green infrastructure; and
  3. intelligent (water + energy) systems.
