Development of Guidelines for Stormwater Harvesting on Melbourne Water Assets

The guidelines are designed to provide proponents and engineering practitioners with guidance on Melbourne Water's requirements for stormwater harvesting schemes on Melbourne Water assets and recommended options for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of diversion structures.

This project was started in 2011 and completed by January 2016. IV Water is proud to be part of this 5 year long development that involved comprehensive industry and stakeholders consultation and addressing complex and challenging issues such as environmental/base flow requirements in the urban drainage systems in the context of stormwater harvesting.
