Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) / Water Sensitive Design (WSD) Implementation, Operation & Management Seminars (2015)

We have just concluded a very successful seminar series hosted by the UCT Urban Water Management research unit, Water Research Commission, City of Johannesburg, City of Tshwane, City of Cape Town, eThekwini Municipality, and SAICE Amathole, on: ‘Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) / Water Sensitive Design (WSD) – implementation, operation and management‘. The main presenter was Prof Bill Hunt from North Carolina State University, and he did a wonderful job in terms of inspiring diverse audiences in the various cities around the country. For those who may have missed out on this opportunity or would like to revisit some of the information, here are the presentations in pdf form. We would welcome your comments!
