    Are you involved in, or interested in WSUD in South Australia?

    Online survey now open !

    South Australia has a strong history of innovation in stormwater management, and recent policy reforms position our state as national leaders in the transition to water sensitive urban growth and renewal.

    Key to maintaining this leadership is a skilled and supported network of professionals like you.

    Yet unlike other states, South Australia does not have a dedicated program designed to build the capacity of people working in integrated urban water management.  To direct investment in capacity-building we need first to understand the skill and knowledge gaps. What do you require to develop professionally? What is needed to drive Water Sensitive Urban Design in your area?

    For a limited time, you have chance to make your views heard via a Practitioner Survey.

    We want to hear from planners, developers, engineers, architects, maintenance staff and others across local government, industry, state agencies, and universities - anyone with a role or interest in urban water management. But for your particular needs to be recognised, it is vital that we hear from you.

    Get yourself a cup of tea and take 15 minutes to answer our short series of questions. This survey is designed to be internet-mobile friendly, so you don't even need to be at your desk.

    But be quick - the survey closes on July 31.
