This is Session #12 of the ‘Stormwater Fundamental’ series in 2024, focussing WSUD Asset Compliance. Hundreds of thousands of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) assets have been installed across Australia on private and public property. These assets have been installed to protect the health of waterways and water resources. Like any assets, their function is dependent on their appropriate maintenance. The majority of WSUD assets, however, seldom receive appropriate maintenance. There is subsequently a significant opportunity for local Government to better protect waterways and water resources by improving maintenance practices for WSUD assets (in both public and private ownership), and this can be done through WSUD Maintenance Compliance Programs. WSUD Maintenance Compliance Programs help improve management of public assets and enforce maintenance requirements on private assets. This training event will look to take attendees through the foundations of an effective WSUD Maintenance Compliance program. These foundations being: • Legal framework: the legal grounds to enforce compliance. • Compliance management system: a system that allows the authority to manage and track compliance. • Processes: having processes in place and documented for all stages of the compliance program. • Education: educating and engaging with the people you are trying to make comply. • Recognition: recognising people that comply to increase compliance. This session is particularly relevant for individuals from regulatory authorities, and individuals with an interest in understanding how to comply with maintenance requirements. At the end of this event, attendees will understand the foundations of WSUD maintenance compliance, and know what they can do to help improve WSUD maintenance compliance. The 45-minute session will include a short presentation by Ocean Protect’s Daniel Rider, followed by Q&A with attendees. A certificate of CPD can be provided to attendees upon request.
