Our cities are changing to a denser urban form, so how can government and the urban water industry address the challenge to safely and sustainably manage ever-increasing stormwater volumes, peak flows and deteriorating water quality? A reliance on grant programs to fund capital works projects does not adequately address the legacy issues facing stormwater managers, notwithstanding the emerging challenges presented by the rapid change in imperviousness of our suburbs.
Communities need integrated solutions for stormwater management that deliver multiple benefits, underpinned by a sustainable funding source to deliver the associated capital works and asset management programs. This forum provides an overview of a range of alternative funding models for stormwater management from user schemes to incentives currently applied internationally and interstate. The needs within our state and funding models suited to the South Australian context will be explored during the afternoon workshop.
