Stormwater run-off management using WSUD techniques

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Stormwater run-off is a source of organic and inorganic nutrients and other pollutants, mobilizing and redistributing from the point and non-point sources within the catchments. Such nutrients and pollutants loads create challenges in the downstream receiving waterways, leading to water quality impairment, eutrophication and dissolved oxygen depletion, in overall recreational amenities reduction. A holistic management plan to attenuate excess stormwater run-off is, therefore, needed to restore ecological services and mitigate adverse effects within and around the receiving watercourses, and to improve urban liveability. In doing so, different Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) techniques, i.e., constructed wetlands, bio-filters, green roofs, living walls etc. are currently in operation. This session will show the latest advances in stormwater monitoring and management. Particular interest will be given to WSUD design and operation, WSUD restoration, real-time monitoring, sensor networks, modeling, and uncertainty in outcomes.
