Urban waterscapes: creating water smart cities for Australia is part of the CSIRO’s “Water for a Healthy Country Flagship research” program, which aims to establish Australian cities as world leaders in the efficient use of water. The project initially focuses on Australias two major east coast cities of Melbourne and Sydney. These cities are examined as total urban systems, with a focus on the impact of urban water activities from the ocean to the outer reaches of our water supply catchments.
Two major research projects tackling city water issues are:
* Water Smart City Systems: creating water-smartâ€˜ cities tailored to Australian culture and conditions
* Water Smart Communities: transforming urban water service provision.
