Traditional urban development practices and the resulting impervious surfaces within catchments have resulted in increased flows and pollutant loading into receiving waterways. To minimise the effects of urban development on surrounding environments in Australia, Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) has been introduced as an innovative planning and design philosophy with the purpose of mitigating these impacts and protecting waterway health.
