Project title: Stormwater Capture and Reuse on RMIT University City Campus
Project aim: To provide an understanding of stormwater across the RMIT University City campus and make recommendations to improve RMIT’s adaptation responses to climate change using Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) to promote capture and reuse. Site surveys of RMIT City Campus will be undertaken to detemine the permeability of the campus and a storm water model will be developed.
