E2DesignLab was commissioned by the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) to conduct an independent review of its newly developed RESTORE Tool. RESTORE is a decision making tool to support the holistic repair of urban waterways. The tool asks practitioners a range of questions about the environmental and urban setting of their restoration site and identifies the ecosystem components likely to be most relevant.

This paper presents the outcomes of E2DesignLab's pilot application of the RESTORE Tool to four sites along Scrubby Creek located in the City of Logan, south-east Queensland. It explains how the E2DesignLab team applied the tool, and identifies opportunities for improvement.
