Healthy Urban Waterways through Innovative Stormwater Technology (2022)
Healthy urban waterways are the lifeblood of our cities and one of our primary assets in creating a resilient, sustainable urban area. Yet untreated stormwater runoff from urban surfaces is a major source of degradation to these waterways. We need to tailor our approach to stormwater infrastructure development and management to ensure our urban waterways thrive, while accounting for future climate change effects on stormwater. The new knowledge and technologies generated via research can guide our stormwater infrastructure planning and strategic decision-making, and support environmental stewardship. This presentation covers the latest modelling technology to effectively identify sources of pollution and the research-led development of a new treatment technology to address the thorny pollution problem of ecotoxic dissolved metals.
