Maribyrnong Kororoit WSUD and IWCM Scoping and Prioritisation Study
Brimbank City Council, Hume City Council, Hobsons Bay City Council, Melbourne Water
The Maribyrnong Kororoit WSUD and IWCM scoping and prioritisation study assessed the value and risk profiles of sub-catchments and identified those with the greatest potential benefits from WSUD. Sixteen priority sub-catchments were identified and a long list of potential WSUD opportunities were identified within the priority catchments. A WSUD prioritisation framework was developed and used to identify the top 25 WSUD opportunities. A concept design and business case was developed to demonstrate the costs and benefits of each project. These projects represent the best opportunities across the assessed catchments for waterway improvement and enhanced liveability, and provide a logical pathway forward for each Council to progress implementation of WSUD.
