[Abstract]: As stormwater flows are intermittent, the requirement to store urban runoff is important to the design of a stormwater re-use scheme. In many urban areas, the space available to provide storage is limited and thus the need to optimise the storage volume becomes critical. This paper will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of two different approaches of providing storage: 1) a single storage in which stormwater capture and a balanced release for supply use is provided by the one unit and 2) a dual storage in which the roles of stormwater capture and supply release is provided by two separate storage units. The comparison between the two strategies is supported by predictive modelling assessing the supply reliability and storage volume requirements for both options. The results of the comparison provide guidance to the design of more efficient storages associated with stormwater harvesting systems.
