Stormwater Quality Improvement Device Evaluation Protocol (SQIDEP) – what’s in it, what’s not, and why not. @ GHD
Mar 29 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

After 5 years of consultation, collaboration and negotiation, Stormwater Australia released the SQIDEP document in December 2018. The document provides a uniform set of criteria to which all stormwater treatment measures (green & grey) can be field-tested and reported. These criteria should guide and inform field monitoring programs that seek to demonstrate pollutant removals for treatment measures implemented to achieve planning water quality objectives.

Dr Darren Drapper (Drapper Environmental Consultants) will provide;

  • a detailed overview of the background to the SQIDEP and its origins,
  • the consultation, collaboration and formulation process,
  • the criteria included in the current version, and why
  • the criteria excluded from the current version, and why
  • field testing vs lab testing,
  • what this might look like (equipment requirements),
  • what this might cost to comply with,
  • what is a QAPP, when must it be prepared & submitted,
  • what is a DPR, what’s in it, what happens with it,
  • what about information/data that is already collected (Australian & international),

As an interactive workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to ask your questions about this important benchmark for our industry.  Don’t miss this chance to be at the leading edge of this significant step-change in our industry.

Following the presentation, there will be the opportunity for further informal discussions and networking with industry colleagues over drinks and canapes.
