Water efficient urban design
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria in 2016, defines water efficient urban design as: ‘Integrating and managing the water cycle in an area through collection, treatment and reuse technologies, to minimise environmental impacts and improve aesthetic and recreational appeal. It often includes managing both potable water use, and stormwater, groundwater and wastewater. Also known as water sensitive urban design.’
