Hydropolis 2017

This half day conference will consider several perspectives on how infrastructure can be considered and managed from a catchment perspective. Stormwater WA, together with NWW,  will present industry, landscape, local government, state government and research perspectives that highlight their roles and activities in managing our assets in a way which delivers improved catchment outcomes. This will include a presentation on the works being done at Bayswater, including the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary.

The aims/objectives of the day are to demonstrate that constructed stormwater management infrastructure can be integrated into the catchment as part of the ‘public domain’ of road reserves and parklands. This is particularly relevant with the advent of ‘at source’ management for small rainfall events to achieve the objectives of creating the Water Sensitive Cities vision. This can be better achieved by stimulating local community input to establish a local community vision and priorities for their waterways and catchments. It is the community that has the on-the ground knowledge that can really take the vision forward, but with support from professionals employed within Government entities and the consulting industry.
