Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – An Overview

Kerrie Burge, Robin Allison, Tony Wong, Peter Breen

This paper outlines Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) initiatives in Melbourne Docklands and discusses experiences from the design, construction and operational phases.  Additionally, it captures learnings that have occurred as a result of these experiences.  It is hoped these experiences can be used to further inform design, construction and operation of WSUD in subsequent stages of Melbourne Docklands as well as more broadly.

This paper is one of a series of papers that explain the case study.  Refer also to the companion papers: CAS 47 Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – Rain gardens and Bioretention Tree Pits and CAS 48 Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – Wetlands and Storage and Reuse Systems.
