Drainage for Liveability guidance notes
Guidance notes for drainage management
The Drainage for Liveability guidance note series have been developed in collaboration with the Water Corporation. The series provides an integrated approach to drainage management focusing on opportunities to maximise community and environmental benefits.
Each note focuses on certain principles for consideration and provides recommendations to inform a collaborative approach. The intention is to promote meaningful interaction between organisations and their representatives undertaking drainage design and management through a considered, collaborative and consistent approach.
Other infrastructure managers are encouraged to adopt the approaches outlined where applicable.
A joint approach
As part of our aligned approach to drainage, key areas have been identified and we are committed to the development of joint guidelines to support improved outcomes from drainage infrastructure.
Both organisations seek to:
- Promote a shared vision of improved management for water and drainage in the landscape to enhance liveability of our cities and towns.
- Provide joint positions and recommendations as part of the water portfolio in advice to stakeholders.
- Develop agreed recommendations for technical and policy related aspects of drainage management.
- Promote contemporary water resource best management practices, considering stormwater as a valuable resource.
These guidelines will be made available on this page as they are developed and finalised.
