Diggers Rest Hydrology and Drainage Strategy, Diggers Rest, Victoria
Client: Investa Property Group
DesignFlow developed a precinct scale hydrology assessment and stormwater management strategy for the 380 ha site north west of Melbourne. The investigations and resultant integrated water management strategy were commissioned to inform the precinct structure plan (PSP) being developed for the site by the Growth Area Authority. Investigations included site interpretation of the existing drainage characteristics and assessment of likely post development hydrology including interaction with adjacent properties and infrastructure. A strategy was then developed to mitigate the impacts of urban development through the management of potential flood flows (retarding basins) and frequent runoff events (precinct wide WSUD strategy). Recommendations were made relating to augmentation of potable water supplies through rainwater tanks and regional stormwater harvesting.
