Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – Wetlands, Storage and Reuse System

Kerrie Burge, Robin Allison, Tony Wong, Peter Breen

This report describes Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) initiatives in the Melbourne Docklands and outlines experiences from 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 either 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 46: Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – An Overview and CAS 48: Water Sensitive Urban Design in the Melbourne Docklands – Raingardens and Bioretention Tree Pits.
