Abstract

Traditional urban water systems based on centralised only water supply are facing challenges to meet the increasing water demand due to increasing population in urban centres. These systems are also vulnerable to periodic drought and flooding due to climate change. For this reason, urban water managers around the world have been supporting the adoption of decentralised water supply options such as wastewater reuse, greywater reuse, rainwater harvesting and stormwater harvesting in combination with centralised system to aid with meeting water demand as well as flood mitigation and stream health restoration. In this paper, the combination of centralised water supply system (WSS) with the decen..
