2018 Stormwater Australia National Conference
October 8 - October 12
We are now entering the age of the mega city; in some countries as much as 90% of the population lives in urban centres. Urban centres are sinks, drawing in resources from their wide and disparate hinterlands. Stormwater professionals are very aware that the poorly evolved drainage systems of the past convey this pollution to receiving environments. A modern understanding of urban stream ecology reveals that paved cities do not respect the ecosystems that once flourished. And in a dry land such as Australia we are acutely aware of the need to manage our runoff as a resource rather than a waste. The Conference has the resolution of many of these issues as a key area of focus.
