Event description

Harnessing technology to develop resilient solutions for Adelaide

Our urban stormwater systems and infrastructure are under increasing pressure. New communities and infill development with larger roofs, and more hard paved, impermeable areas and roads, paths and surfaces are generating higher rates of runoff – and demand on the drainage system continues to rise.

We are noticing our drainage systems’ capacity to deliver the same flood protection to homes and business is not as it has always been.

A changing climate will further exacerbate rainfall intensity, alter seasonal patterns and cause prolonged drought, creating uncertainty and challenging traditional approaches to stormwater network design.

How can we make the stormwater system work smarter, not harder?

Join our presenters for an online seminar to discuss harnessing new technologies, looking at the problem from a fresh perspective and using machine learning to help to develop optimised and resilient solutions for Adelaide suburbs.
