Full description

Water conservation, water quality improvement, flood control and a healthy living environment are just some of the benefits that can be delivered by Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD). Despite these benefits, WSUD has not been widely adopted in South Australia. This project aimed to find out why South Australia has not experienced mainstream uptake of WSUD before addressing those barriers and identifying opportunities to encourage the implementation of sustainable urban design which is tailored to the state's specific needs and conditions.

The project evaluated the uptake and effectiveness of various WSUD approaches for water quantity, quality and flood mitigation in South Australia. A significant part of the project included developing calibrated models of urban catchments in the greater Adelaide region supported by rainfall, flow and mapping data from state and local governments.

This dataset includes the calibrated models produced by Task 3 of the project. These models were for the Frederick Street catchment (also known as Drain 18), located in Glengowrie, South Australia and the Paddocks catchment, located in Para Hills, South Australia. The models were developed in PCSWMM Version 5, available from CHI Software. However, the model is fully compatible with the USEPA Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) Version 5. Further information on the intent, assumptions and background data for the model is provided in the research report for the project. Please see related publication for a link to the report.
