Updated-Stormwater Management Manual

Stormwater management aims to build on the traditional objective of local flood protection by having multiple outcomes, including improved water quality management, valuing stormwater as a resource, protecting ecosystems, and providing healthy attractive communities. It examines how the runoff quantity, and associated pollutants, can be managed from source to the receiving water bodies using a range of best management practices available.

This manual presents a comprehensive approach to management of stormwater in WA, based on the principle that stormwater is a resource – with social, environmental, and economic opportunities.
