Urban freshwater bodies (be it streams, rivers, or lakes) are often used as sinks for untreated urban run-off from a wide range of land uses, with the predominant urban pollutants being heavy metals, nutrients, total suspended solids, and bacteria (e.g. E. coli). Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), an approach to planning and designing urban areas, is increasingly being considered for mitigation of stormwater impact on water quality in receiving environment. Although different WSUDs such as bioretention systems or swales or wetlands have been implemented, a significant gap remains to predict their impact at catchment level.
In this webinar, we will discuss this gap and the different ways in which this gap can be addressed. Relevant case studies will also be presented in this webinar.
