Water sensitive urban design helps us to provide reliable sources of alternative water for our trees and parks, reducing our reliance on drinking water and create a more resilient urban forest.
Melbourne’s urban forest is made up of trees, parks and plants that all work to keep our city cool and our waterways clean. Providing a sustainable source of water to keep our urban forest healthy is a key driver in many of our projects. These projects show some of the ways we combine green infrastructure and water capture.
