Catchment-scale and riparian zone stormwater retention; can it restore stream hydrology?
Grant number: FT100100144 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
This project will test whether or not stormwater retention systems dispersed throughout a catchment can restore pre-development streamflows in peri-urban streams. It will provide a new model for the design of stormwater drainage systems which both protect aquatic ecosystems and reduce the demand for imported water in cities.
