This document provides guidance on stormwater harvesting and reuse projects based on experience gained from previous projects.

Considerations include:

  • planning – assessing a project within the broader context of integrated urban water cycle management and risk assessment
  • project design – particularly treating stormwater to address risks to public health and the environment, and meeting additional end-use requirements
  • operations, maintenance and monitoring – ensuring that potential impacts to public health and the environment are managed appropriately and project are sustainable.
