Climate Change & Stormwater and Wastewater Systems (2017)
We know climate change is happening and we know stormwater and wastewater systems are vulnerable. What we don’t know is how these impacts will unfold over varying places and times. This discussion paper provides an overview of our current knowledge, and outlines priority research areas to help adapt our stormwater and wastewater systems for a changing climate. The paper draws on a range of expert input, including academia and Crown Research Institutes, the public and private sectors, and specifically water service providers and consultants. Research priorities are: to understand direct and indirect impacts, to identify adaptation opportunities within redevelopment and retrofit, to explore solutions to reduce dependence on legacy delivery mechanisms, and to identify potential improvements in stormwater risk management.

Modelling Stormwater Contaminant Loads in Older Urban Catchments: Effects of Climate Influences on Selecting Management Options Charters, F.; O'Sullivan, A.; Cochrane, T. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2014)An event-based contaminant load model was developed to identify spatial patterns of stormwater total suspended solids (TSS) and heavy metal loads and assess potential reductions in contaminants loads by implementing ...
The influence of atmospheric circulation patterns during large snowfall events in New Zealand's Southern Alps Porhemmat R; Purdie H; Zawar‐Reza P; Zammit C; Kerr T (Wiley, 2020)Large snowfall events contribute significantly to total annual snow accumulation across the maritime Southern Alps. However, the knowledge about atmospheric circulation patterns associated with large snowfall events over ...
