  • Aura, the city of colour – Australia's shining example of widescale integrated water cycle management

    Aura, the ‘City of Colour’, is a 48,000 person masterplanned community on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Aura commenced construction in 2015 and will be developed over the next 25 years. Aura sets a benchmark in Australia regarding large scale urban water sustainability through the application of techniques such as rainwater capture and reuse, construction and operational stormwater treatment, ...

  • Evironmentally Concious Stormwater Management Through Sustainable Design and Best Management Practices

    ABSTRACTBecause development has dramatically altered the hydrologic environment’s sustainability, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is encouraging the use of “green” design through stormwater management BMPs. The MMSD asked Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer and Associates, Inc. (GAS) to evaluate and design stormwater management BMPs. The MMSD headquarters in Milwaukee, WI is serving as ...

  • Uptown shopping center - Case Study

    ChitoVan Chitosan Lactate Cartridge Pretreatment and Sand Filtration Urban development and redevelopment present a host of challenges - not the least of which is managing site stormwater runoff. In a northern suburb of Vancouver Island’s beautiful city of Victoria, BC the stormwater challenge was met and bested through the application of both passive and active chitosan stormwater ...

  • Comparison of the treatment performance of hybrid constructed wetlands treating stormwater runoff

    This study was conducted to compare the treatment performance of two hybrid constructed wetlands (CWs) in treating stormwater runoff. The hybrid CWs were composed of a combination of free water surface (FWS) and horizontal subsurface flow (HSSF) CWs. Based on the results, strong correlation exists between potential runoff impacts and stormwater characteristics; however, the low correlations ...

  • About Everglades construction project

    The Everglades is a one-of-a-kind habitat, the largest wetland and subtropical wilderness in the United States. For more than 100 years, the ecosystem has suffered at the hands of man, with agriculture encroachment and development runoff disrupting native plants and animals. For more than 25 years the South Florida Water Management District has been investigating ways to restore and protect the ...

  • Performance of a pilot-scale constructed wetland for stormwater runoff and domestic sewage treatment on the banks of a polluted urban river

    To examine the performance of a constructed wetland system on stormwater runoff and domestic sewage (SRS) treatment in central east China, two parallel pilot-scale integrated constructed wetland (ICW) systems were operated for one year. Each ICW consisted of a down-flow bed, an up-flow bed and a horizontal subsurface flow bed. The average removal rates of chemical oxygen demand (CODCr), total ...

  • Stormwater treatment area 3/4

    Restore the Everglades That's the task the Florida Legislature set for the South Florida Water Management District. But how? Decades of development had eliminated the sheet flow of water from Lake Okeechobee. Densely populated cities and a 700,000-acre agricultural area, drained by 1,500 miles of canals and levees, now lay between the lake and the Everglades. Wetlands have disappeared. ...

  • The world`s largest stormwater alum treatment facility - in Florida

    Stormwater in the Florida canal system is slow moving.  The green, murky water in the lakes fed by the Apopka-Beauclair canal is caused by an overabundance of algae-feeding compounds, mainly phosphorus, resulting in chronic algal blooms.  The Nutrient Reduction Facility (NuRF) project designed a system to inject aluminum sulface (alum) into the nutrient-laden water in direct proportion ...
