Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on May 24th, 2012

5 June , 2012
4:00 pmto6:00 pm

Clearwater, in partnership with Warrnambool City Council and Horizon 21, will be delivering a free workshop to learn about the benefits of applying Water Sensitive Urban Design, a range of sustainable water management techniques, and relevant policy and legislation.

Tuesday June 5th, 4-6pm

This workshop is appropriate for those who plan and manage the urban built environment (streetscape, carpark and parkland elements) and are looking for ways to utilise stormwater and improve the quality of run off stormwater and create a water sensitive City.  This session is ideal for planners, engineers, drafts people, architects, horticulturalists, builders and site supervisors. At the end of this session you will:

  • become familiar with the concepts required to design an effective stormwater harvesting project
  • learn about the latest research in stormwater pollutants
  • gain an understanding of how to plan for and apply stormwater technologies
  • learn about an innovative water harvesting project underway in the South West.
RSVP by Friday 1 June 2012 via the Clearwater website.
