Over the coming weeks, we will be updating documentation and systems with the new logo.

The new website development is now well underway. Design work has been approved and the website build is progressing.

Our new database solution will also be under development in parallel with the website build.

 

Large parts of Eastern Australia have been experiencing a severe weather event, with extreme rainfall and flooding.

Stormwater Australia extends its condolences to the family and friends of those who have lost their lives, and to the many thousands of people directly affected by the floods. We are thinking of you at this time and understand that it is an uncertain and emotional time.

We express our gratitude and support to our emergency service personnel, and to our colleagues involved in the flood response including those managing our dams. Many have been working 15-hour shifts, with little to no sleep during this period, to help keep our communities safe.

Suitably qualified professionals are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to hold a position on the Stormwater Australia Stormwater Quality Improvement Device Evaluation Protocol (SQIDEP) Independent Evaluation/Auditors Panel (IEP).

Closing Date and Time: 5:00 pm AEST on Friday 4th March 2022 (extended)

(Due to the extreme weather events occurring now on the East Coast of Australia, applications will be accepted up until 31st March 2022)

On 7th March 2019, the Stormwater Australia Board issued a Public Notice regarding the registration of the Stormwater Australia trading name by another organisation.

The Stormwater Australia Board is pleased to advise members that the Stormwater Australia trading name has subsequently been transferred to the Association, effective 21st March 2019.

Have you ever thought stormwater management is just too complex? We are managing proposed developments to peak flows, imposed detention requirements, sometimes effective imperviousness and then water quality requirements. On top of this, we are asked to match the peak flow in the 1.5 year ARI (VIC) or something even more complicated as in NSW. And now let's throw in BASIX and other related planning requirements.

This is excellent for keeping our industry and consultants busy, but is it all necesssary?
