Stormwater To The Rescue: Regional Stormwater Harvesting For Ecosystem Protection And Potable Water Yield

Stormwater To The Rescue: Regional Stormwater Harvesting For Ecosystem Protection And Potable Water Yield

The creation of new urban development to support population growth leads to environmental stress at a number of levels, most notably in water regime. Urbanisation and the associated introduction of impervious surfaces can lead to significant changes to hydrology and increased pollutant export from catchments which in turn can result in irreversible impacts on sensitive aquatic ecosystems. Additionally, the increased demand for water within new urban zones places a significant requirement on water supply systems to the point where substantial infrastructure investment is required to increase capacity.
