C&ENVENG 7109 - Environmental Engineering and Design IVB

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2014

The course aims to introduce the design principles and tools used to undertake Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM). The IUWM design paradigm aims to increase the long-term sustainability of urban water systems by placing a greater emphasis on household and subdivision scale water management solutions including raising public awareness, implementation of domestic water restrictions, provision of demand management incentives (installing water saving appliances) and support for alternative supply sources including rainwater tanks and water recycling. Topics covered will be selected from the following: (1) Water sensitive urban design approach to manage stormwater quantity and quality (2) Using household water use modelling to optimize alternative supply sources and/or demand management incentives to minimize urban water use (3) Evaluating the impact of small-scale IUWM on regional water supply systems sustainability considering aspects water supply security, climate change and cost-energy use trade-off's.
