Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) and Drainage
Our experience in the drainage and WSUD design spans over a decade of hard work and dedication to the stormwater cause.
The required skills and expertise have been developed via involvement in the iconic projects like EastLink, Melbourne Airport Business park as well as our work on a series of smaller subdivisional type projects where the constructability and cost effectiveness of the design solutions were tested against the strict Authority requirements (e.g. Melbourne Water) and operational and maintenance considerations.

City of Kingston, Chelsea Public Golf Course Drainage Augmentation
City of Kingston was undertaking the large drainage upgrade project at/adjacent to the Chelsea Public Golf Course. This complex project involved flood mitigation and stormwater harvesting components and had interaction with Melbourne Water major drainage network.
The site conditions also appear to be challenging partially due to weak soils and shallow water table affecting the choice of construction methodology for the works. The project encompasses both drainage augmentation, flood mitigation, WSUD and Stormwater harvesting components.
Due to complexity and challenges of this project City of Kingston engaged the services of IVWater to review the project design and provide professional advice on functionality, construction methodology, operational and maintenance issues, costs and other aspects.
