This one day workshop gives a comprehensive introduction to the Centre for Cooperative Research for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) “Adoption Guide lines for Stormwater Biofiltration System”.

The workshop will guide participants towards key content in the guidelines including; what is a biofiltration system, how do they function and what are their benefits. Participants will also work through key considerations for design, construction, handover, operation and maintenance. The workshop will also debunk some of the myths around biofiltratjon systems.

Participants will also be introduced to other useful resources referenced in the guidelines s including those developed by Water by Design (now Healthy Land and Water).
By tine end of this workshop participants will:

  • Have a good understanding of the content of the guidelines and know where they can find
    relevant information.
  • Understand what a biofiltration system is, how it functions and what are the benefits of
    these systems
  • Understand the different types of biofiltration systems and the context that they would be used
  • Identify key considerations for designing biofiltration systems at the concept stage
  • Identify common design, construction, handover, operation and maintenance issues associated with biofiltration systems.

Who should attend?
Practitioners seeking a better understanding of biofiltration systems including asset and civil engineers, development assessment officers, landscape architects, environmental officers and planners.
