Front of mind - When new information changes the landscape
The concept of water sensitive urban design might be more than 20 years old, but we have so much still to learn. Today we're joined by Alan Hoban to talk about how we as an industry deal with new information. This is definitely front of his mind. Should we embrace it and change? Approach it with caution? Howl heresy into the wind?
For our discussion, Alan and I draw upon recent research that shows that residential and commercial areas in South East Queensland generate less sediment, nitrogen and phosphorous that previously thought, as well as research showing bioretention systems 'disappearing' large amounts of water.
