Description

Hydropolis 2006 is the first Australian National Conference on Rainwater as a Resource.

The conference has been prompted by the continuing evidence of a drying climate and increasing development of our water resources in Australia. Large scale engineering solutions such as canals from the North West and desalination plants have been floated as the response while stormwater that falls within a local catchment has largely been forgotten as a resource.

The conference content will include presentations on innovative aspects of the management of rainwater as a resource and its potential value to the community in ways not previously considered.

This conference will be about the role of water in urban systems and how we plan, build and rebuild our cities as we face growth pressure and changing climate and water realities. Water needs to be seen as the integrating element in city and urban design.
