This event is proudly sponsored by River Sands.

Water by Design, in collaboration with BMT and the Department of Environment and Science, have reviewed the past 16 years of science and drawn on expertise from a variety of professionals to provide the most significant update to bioretention filter materials specifications since the Facility for Advancing Water Biofiltration (FAWB) 2006 specifications. Water by Design will soon be publishing the new specifications and in anticipation of the release, has partnered with Stormwater Queensland to host the two primary authors in this webinar.

The webinar will help explain how the new specifications seek to address the widely observed issue of plant dieback in bioretention by focusing on the biology of filter media as part of a broader ecological system. Presenting a new approach to best practice and expected to be adopted by regulatory authorities, this is an important webinar for practitioners to attend. While the new specifications are to be published in Queensland, they can be applied nationally and therefore, the webinar is relevant to anyone interested in bioretention systems.

The webinar will include a presentation (of approximately 35 minutes) by BMT’s Paul Dubowski and Water by Design’s Ben Penhallurick, followed by Q&A with attendees.

Proof of CPD can be provided upon request to Stormwater Queensland.
