SMEC improves water cycle management in Sydney
SMEC have recently completed a water management infrastructure project providing a framework for water cycle management in the growing region of South Western Sydney.
SMEC have recently completed a water management infrastructure project providing a framework for water cycle management in the growing region of South Western Sydney. Over the past two years, our Water Resources team worked in partnership with Liverpool City Council to deliver a detailed concept design for stormwater management infrastructure required to protect against flooding and improve water quality.
The project included the design of 19 flood detention basins with integrated water quality controls, additional street scape water quality controls, 22 culvert crossings, significant trunk drainage, overland flow paths and creek restorations.
SMEC applied the most up to date guidelines, along with Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) technical guidelines for Western Sydney, to ensure consistency with wider regional policies and best practice.
Our team adopted a flexible design approach which allowed Council to engage with the development community throughout the planning and design process, promoting integrated growth and attracting positive feedback from key stakeholders.
Congratulations to Liverpool City Council on successful completion of this milestone project. We acknowledge the remarkable team effort and personal contributions of everyone involved in the project delivery.
Together with our clients and partners, we are proud to have been recognised at the 2020 Australian Engineering Excellence Awards.Read More
