Stormwater Queensland in conjunction with Stormwater Australia are hosting an update session on the New National Protocol for the Evaluation of Stormwater Quality Improvement Devices will be held at The Greek Club from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm on Tuesday, 21st June.


There are statewide provisions for stormwater quality management in the State Planning Policy, and many local governments also have stormwater quality provisions within their planning scheme.

Over the past several years there has been concern over the lack of a clear framework to verify the performance claims for proprietary stormwater products, also known as stormwater quality improvement devices (SQID).  This has become a point of tension in the development assessment process.

Over the past two years Stormwater Australia has been developing a Stormwater Quality Improvement Devices Evaluation Protocol (SQIDEP).  The protocol developed this far has a particular focus on providing guidance on field testing requirements, collection, analysis and presentation of data, and ensuring the process is both technically competent and sufficiently independent to support confidence in the outcomes.

The draft SQIDEP can be downloaded by clicking the link below or alternatively please cut and past the following link into your web browser:


Stormwater Queensland in conjunction with Stormwater Australia will be hosting a public event  providing an update on the SQID Protocol,   This event will comprise of a general information session and open to a broad cross section of stakeholders and interest groups including manufacturers and vendors of products. Local government officers, consultants and other relevant stakeholders are also invited to attend in order to understand the basics of the protocol.  This event will be held from 1.30 pm until 3.00 pm on the afternoon of Tuesday, 21st June, 2016.
