|This webinar is very similar to the sold-out seminar held on 18th August 2021.
The Queensland Urban Drainage Manual (QUDM) underwent a significant review and a new version was launched by IPWEAQ and the Department of Energy and Water Supply on 26 October 2017. One of our speakers, Sarah Hausler, was a member of the QUDM Review Steering Committee. Sarah led the redrafting of Chapter 3 of QUDM, which deals with the legal aspects of urban stormwater, including the renowned lawful point of discharge test.
The purpose, status and function of the lawful point of discharge test has been subject to some controversy. Chapter 3 of QUDM was amended in 2017 to improve the alignment between the lawful point of discharge test and the general law, with a view to making the legal content of QUDM more accessible to its users.
We are now four years on from the commencement of QUDM Fourth Edition. This webinar will provide an overview of the lawful point of discharge test and other relevant legal considerations, along with some recent case studies involving stormwater discharge.
Registration is $10.
A certificate of attendance can be provided upon request.
