Abstract

Stormwater management broadly has been well accepted as necessary for both flood avoidance and importantly also the prevention of aquatic ecosystem degradation within and around cities. Harvesting stormwater to provide diversification of water supplies offers a way of avoiding flooding and ecosystem degradation as well as acting to improve the climate resilience of cities. With Australia's population overwhelmingly urban in character, and the climate well known to oscillate between droughts and flooding rains, the opportunities represented by stormwater harvesting are significant, for both greenfield and brownfield developments.
