Blue Green Infrastructure Design Typologies for Streetscapes
These design typologies will assist those planning, designing, constructing and maintaining blue green infrastructure assets for streetscapes.
Blue Green Infrastructure contains vegetation that is passively irrigated with stormwater. These include Water Sensitive Urban Design features like raingardens and raingarden tree pits which reduce pollution entering our local waterways.
These design typologies will assist those planning, designing, constructing and maintaining blue green infrastructure assets for streetscapes. Each typology contains relevant design drawings, design advice, MUSIC modelling parameters, recommended construction hold points and ongoing maintenance schedules.
The development of these typologies has been assisted by Melbourne Water as part of the Living Rivers Program.
The purpose of this information is to assist you in developing your Blue Green Infrastructure project. Some of the drawings associated with this typology are not yet included in the Engineering Standard Drawings. We are currently identifying sites for potential trials. You will need to work with our Infrastructure and Assets team and Urban Forest team to finalise your design and obtain relevant approvals.
