Filter media for stormwater treatment and recycling: the influence of hydraulic properties of flow on pollutant removal

B. E. Hatt, N. Siriwardene, A. Deletic & T. D. Fletcher
Improved urban water management in Australia is of national importance. Water resources are stretched and urban runoff is a recognized leading cause of degradation of urban waterways. Stormwater recycling is an option that can contribute to easing these problems. Biofilters are effective structural stormwater pollution control measures with the potential for integration into stormwater treatment and recycling systems. However, premature clogging of biofilters is a major problem, with resulting decreased infiltration capacity (and hence the...
