Cities as Water Supply Catchments: Sustainable technologies (Project C1.1)

Overview Stormwater has emerged as a viable alternative water resource to mains water or water sourced from water reservoirs. In the past few years, stormwater runoff has been increasingly harvested on small scales using mainly non-sustainable, energy-intense technologies. However, technological…

Integrated multi-functional urban water systems (Project C4.1)

Overview   Stormwater biofilters (also known as raingardens or bioretention systems) and constructed wetlands are currently regarded as two of the most promising water sensitive urban design (WSUD) technologies. For example, biofilters are highly efficient in reducing runoff volumes, and…

Cities as Water Supply Catchments: Risk and health – understanding stormwater quality hazards (Project C1.2)

Overview Harvesting and reuse of stormwater runoff provides ecosystem services and increases water security. Impediments to the implementation of stormwater harvesting systems are mainly related to concerns regarding potential public health risks. Testing stormwater for micropollutants, toxicity and pathogens is…

Fit-for-purpose water production (Project C1.3)

Overview Decentralised fit-for-purpose water production provides an excellent opportunity to sustainably, reliably and cost-effectively meet growing demands for water of various quality levels, thereby complementing centralised water supply systems. Widespread implementation of such treatment is however currently hindered by a…

Managing interactions between decentralised and centralised water systems (Project C3.1)

Overview Water management strategies in all Australian cities include initiatives to reduce water consumption and supplement water supplies with alternative or decentralised systems that produce water with fit-for- purpose quality from locally available sources such as stormwater and greywater. The…
