At a time when the intensity of rainstorms is increasing, a new study suggests that our current stormwater management efforts may not have much of an impact.
A team of researchers has found that stormwater detention basins can do more than just control water flow.
The MACE FloPro stormwater monitoring solution uses a doppler ultrasonic area velocity sensor that can measure bidirectional flows in open channels, pipes and stormwater culverts without the need for civil works or weirs and flumes, etc.
A new design of catch basin insert treats stormwater at the source by removing gross pollutants such as leaves and plastic, as well as smaller dissolvable pollutants.
Changing the way Melbourne charges for stormwater management could reduce stormwater runoff volumes by 59 billion litres and annual management costs by $191m by 2050.
The changes are intended to protect rivers, reduce the burden on drinking water supplies, and deal with the challenges of climate change and a future with less rainfall.
Rooftop rainwater is being diverted to large-scale urban food production at a sustainable housing project at Cape Paterson called The Cape.
What's in stormwater runoff depends on where the rain falls and where it is collected — but are there discernible trends that could help standardise stormwater treatments to minimise threats to human health?
Located between Sydney Airport and the city, Green Square is Australia's largest urban renewal project.
The City of Melbourne is working with the Victorian Government to install Australia's first combined stormwater harvesting and flood mitigation tank to protect against flooding in Melbourne's CBD.
Design, science and sustainability have come together at a Sydney Park stormwater project, which has now won a 2016 Good Design Award.
As Australia's east coast is ravaged by storms, UNSW engineers have got some bad news — due to climate change, flash flooding from such events is becoming more likely.
The City of Sydney has officially opened an $11.3 million stormwater harvesting system to support wetlands and wildlife in Sydney Park.
New Zealand engineering student Rachel Harrison has designed a new stormwater system as part of Calibre Consulting's work to extend the Porirua Railway Station car park. Her system will prevent flooding in the car park and remove contaminants from runoff before it enters the Porirua Stream.
Consulting company GHD has successfully implemented an innovative multibarrier stormwater treatment system, named the StormDMT, for a major mining company at the Port of Townsville in Queensland. The patented technology economically filters stormwater and is effective for a broad range of contaminants.
