Confined water sensitive urban design (WSUD) stormwater filtration/infiltration systems for Australian conditions

A. Dunphy, S. Beecham, C. Jones, A. Collins, M. Liebman, J. Wells & P. Michael
This paper describes a project that investigates confined stormwater infiltration/filtration systems and their ability to reduce and retain pollutants present within stormwater runoff. These highly innovative Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) systems are located in three locations to the north and south of Sydney, Australia. They are positioned at different geographic locations and face different subsoil conditions, pollutant loadings and other constraints. The systems contain specially designed porous concrete pipes. Stormwater exfiltrates through the permeable...
