The City of Greater Geelong faces a considerable challenge to manage water resources. The City has in excess of 17,000ha of open space distributed throughout 466 parks. These numbers are set to increase, with a 10-year population growth prediction in excess of 100,000 people in the identified growth areas of Armstrong Creek, Fyansford, Highton, Lara, Leopold and Clifton Springs.    As a result of water restrictions and the subsequent development of Council’s Sustainable Water Use Plan (SWUP) a series of stormwater harvesting projects were developed in partnership with the Australian Government through the National Urban Water and Desalination Plan. 4 out of the 5 projects developed have been  delivered.

David will present the “Geelong experience” and share the project results, outcomes delivered to the community and project issues encountered along the way.
