WSUD Inspection Guidelines
Stormwater Victoria in partnership with Melbourne Water and local Councils
Our team developed WSUD Inspection Guidelines to support inspection, maintenance and rectification of WSUD assets. The guidelines represent a significant evolution of previous asset management guidelines and checklists by providing a clear link from observations to maintenance and rectification needs and establishing systematic methods for documenting outcomes of inspections and maintenance activities for programming and budgeting of maintenance and renewal activities and to support future learnings. The guidelines provide an overview of WSUD principles, stormwater treatments, benefits and council obligations, as well as, WSUD inspection templates including issues, triggers for maintenance and renewal actions and direct links to potential maintenance and rectification actions. Descriptions of typical maintenance and renewal tasks are also included.
