Abstract:

Australia has recently emerged from the worst drought on record. The so-called “Millennium Drought” has triggered a widespread change in water management approaches and practices. This paper outlines recent developments in rainwater harvesting and urban design in Australia and covers some of the key issues that need to be considered in the design and implementation of rainwater harvesting as an alternative source of urban water supply.
