This manual is designed to give practical engineering solutions to engineers who need to implement Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) Guidelines. It is specifically aimed at the engineer who is given the task of implementing conceptual designs, referral agencies who assess these designs and local government who will be responsible for the maintenance of the systems. The manual includes a review of existing documents, design procedures for construction and maintenance, and checking tools, as well as worked examples and engineering plans for commonly used treatment elements including: Sediment basins On-site retention (infiltration) Swale/bioretention combinations Bioretention basins Buffer strips Swale systems Constructed wetlands Ponds/lakes Rainwater tanks (sizing for demand) Sand filters Aquifer storage and recovery
