Synopsis

The unit first examines the general planning issues of integrated urban catchment management followed by an overview of current best management practices in stormwater management. Issues associated with the multiple objective management of urban stormwater will be discussed in detail. Students will gain sufficient appreciation of the management issues and current available technologies to formulate a stormwater management strategy for catchments with pre-specified environmental conditions and development characteristics.
