Stormwater forum reminder

The Environment Division has issued a last call for next week’s forum on stormwater and water sensitive urban design.

It will be held at Launceston's Tram Shed Function Centre on Tuesday 26 September.

Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) is an holistic approach to the management of water in the urban environment.

It involves the cleansing and reuse of stormwater and wastewater and efficient use of potable water supplies, whilst incorporating infrastructure with landscaping at the same time. The focus of this forum is on the stormwater aspects of WSUD.

Local and national speakers will discuss techniques and experiences of WSUD and stormwater management.

DTAE staff involved in the protection of waterways and the management of infrastructure may be interested in coming along.

The focus of WSUD is the urban environment but those who manage roads, tracks and car parks may be interested in environmentally sensitive ways of managing the runoff from these areas.
