Stormwater NSW are pleased to announce the first technical webinar of 2021: Integrated Urban Water Cycle Management featuring Dr Peter Coombes from Southern Cross University and Sylvie Spraakman from the University of Toronto.
This webinar will focus on the need to reframe stormwater drainage as integrated management of the urban water cycle from a design, economic and policy perspective. This approach is in line with the Runoff in Urban Areas, Book 9 in Australian Rainfall & Runoff (2019), co-authored by Peter Coombes.
Sylvie Spraakman will share the outcome of her PhD research on the performance of ‘mature bioretention’ in integrated urban water cycle management and her findings of recent investigations into the long-term hyperformance of Canadian bioretention cells.
Peter’s presentation will look at the broad aspects of integrated urban water cycle management and will focus on the ‘Urban Book’ that has been developed to utilise and compliment the broader set of tools in AR&R used to manage the water cycle. Sylvie’s presentation will focus on the assessment of the long-term performance of bioretention, one element of integrated water cycle management.
