Like all infrastructure, stormwater control measures (SCMs) and other Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) assets require appropriate maintenance to ensure they are achieving their original purpose. It is subsequently recognised that the operation and maintenance of SCM and other WSUD assets require significant and appropriate resources to ensure their appropriate function. However, anecdotal and published information indicates that these assets are often not being appropriately maintained and are subsequently often not achieving their design objectives. ‘Stormwater utilities’ have been proposed as one solution to provide a stable funding source for stormwater management.

Our upcoming workshop will be a chance to describe and discuss the current status of SCM management in QLD (for both privately and publicly owned assets), and describe/ discuss the potential option for future ‘stormwater utilities’.

The format will include short presentations from an Expert Panel followed by an interactive discussion between the audience and panel. Come along, be involved and debate the many competing issues. A complex challenge that requires broad discussion to provide direction and lead our thinking on this critical topic – don’t miss your chance to contribute in this important area.

Confirmed Expert Panel Members include:

  • Jonathon Whitcombe (Moreton Bay Regional Council)
  • Andy Hornbuckle (SPEL Environmental)
  • Charles Coathup (Renew Solutions)
  • Stephen Turfrey (Redlands Shire Council)

Cost:

  • Members and students: $65/ person (incl. GST)
  • Non-members: $100/ person (incl. GST)
