This Program is developing tools (e.g. mathematical models and software packages) and frameworks to help practitioners implement Water Sensitive Cities.
While all the research of the Centre is informed by and informs practice through industry partnership, action research and policy maker & practitioner capacity building programs, the projects under this section are specifically geared towards the creation of new models of implementation. By producing scientifically backed planning and technical tools and frameworks, these projects will create new implementation models for practitioners to use, and help realise Water Sensitive Cities.
For more information on the projects and implementation models they will produce, see the links below:
- MUSIC (Model for Urban Stormwater Improvement Conceptualisation)
- Sinks and Sources of Faecal Micro-Organisms in the Yarra River Estuary

- Micropollutants validation framework for natural treatment systems (PhD – Kefeng Zhang)
- Modelling Microorganisms in Urban Stormwater (PhD – Dr David McCarthy)
- Characterising Urban Pollutant Loads (PhD – Dr Matt Francey)
