Posted in Events, Models, Research, SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on September 25th, 2007

Dr. Grace Mitchell, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Sustainable Water Resources at Monash University spoke about “reusing our urban water resources: from house to city scale” at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table/ Future Melbourne forum. Her talk introduced yet another important aspect to urban sustainable water use – recycling water and the different degrees of water purity. This diversity of water standards are then applied according to the scale and context of use.
