Liveability and the Water Sensitive City

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 8, 2015)

This report establishes the foundation for ongoing research by the CRC in linking urban water management and urban liveability. The study commenced through the Science-Policy Partnership for Water Sensitive Cities, a joint initiative of Monash University’s then Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (now Monash Water for Liveability Centre) and ...

Analysis of effects of climate change on runoff in an urban drainage system: a case study from Seoul, Korea

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 16, 2015)

Both water quantity and quality are impacted by climate change. In addition, rapid urbanization has also brought an immeasurable loss of life and property resulting from floods. Hence, there is a need to predict changes in rainfall events to effectively design stormwater infrastructure to protect urban areas from disaster. This study develops a ...

Integrated hydraulic modelling of water supply and urban drainage networks for assessment of decentralized options

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 15, 2014)

The impact of climate change, water scarcity, land use change, population growth and also population shrinking can only be predicted with uncertainties. Especially for assets with a long planning horizon this is a critical part for planning and design. One solution is to make centralized organized water infrastructure with a long-planning ...

Urban-Water Harmony model to evaluate the urban water management

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 15, 2014)

Water resources in many urban areas are under enormous stress due to large-scale urban expansion and population explosion. The decision-makers are often faced with the dilemma of either maintaining high economic growth or protecting water resources and the environment. Simple criteria of water supply and drainage do not reflect the requirement ...

Multi-objective rehabilitation of urban drainage systems under uncertainties

by IWA Publishing  (Sep. 25, 2014)

Urban drainage systems are subject to many drivers which can affect their performance and functioning. Typically, climate change, urbanisation and population growth along with aging of pipes may lead to uncontrollable discharges and surface flooding. So far, many researchers and practitioners concerned with optimal design and rehabilitation of ...

Green infrastructure for flood-risk management in Dar es Salaam and Copenhagen: exploring the potential for transitions towards sustainable urban water management

by IWA Publishing  (Feb. 6, 2015)

The risk of flooding in urban areas could be better approached by complementing conventional sewer systems with sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) for storm-water management. This may be the case for developing world cities like Dar es Salaam with incomplete sewer services, as well as cities like Copenhagen with fully developed sewer ...

Simplifying impact of urban development on sewer systems

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 15, 2014)

Linking urban development and urban drainage models is a more and more popular approach when impacts of pavement of urban areas on sewer system performance are evaluated. As such an approach is a difficult task, this is not a feasible procedure for everyday engineering practice. We propose an alternative method, based on a developed simple ...

Predicting infiltration pollutant retention in bioretention sustainable drainage systems: model development and validation

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 22, 2014)

A major problem of increased urbanization is the rise in pollution caused by runoff. A solution to this problem can be found through the use of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) such as rain gardens. Previous research has focused primarily on hydrologic design including the degree to which groundwater is replenished by these systems and ...

Comparative analysis of the outflow water quality of two sustainable linear drainage systems

by IWA Publishing  (Oct. 29, 2014)

Three different drainage systems were built in a roadside car park located on the outskirts of Oviedo (Spain): two sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS), a swale and a filter drain; and one conventional drainage system, a concrete ditch, which is representative of the most frequently used roadside drainage system in Spain. The concentrations ...

Modelling the impact of retention–detention units on sewer surcharge and peak and annual runoff reduction

by IWA Publishing  (Mar. 27, 2015)

Stormwater management using water sensitive urban design is expected to be part of future drainage systems. This paper aims to model the combination of local retention units, such as soakaways, with subsurface detention units. Soakaways are employed to reduce (by storage and infiltration) peak and volume stormwater runoff; however, large ...
