Epping Depot Stormwater Management Strategy and Concept Design

Storm was engaged by the City of Whittlesea to undertake a Stormwater Management Strategy and associated concept designs for the Epping Depot aimed at assessing integrated water management options for the site

Councils aim was to be an example to the community and improve their own stormwater management practices. This was to also serve as an educational tool to showcase how an existing site can achieve best practice water management. The project involved extensive hydraulic, water quality and water balance analyses to optimise the potential options which were compared from a cost-benefit point of view. This included catchment management, stormwater harvesting / re-use, water sensitive urban design and detention. Concept designs were presented which were then prioritised in order of effectiveness and cost to inform Council’s short and long term improvement strategy.
