Yarra Valley Water
DCE has been involved in the project from the concept design stage. The project won the Stormwater Victoria Award for Excellence in Master planning and Design in 2010. The project involves designing a large 8ML underground storage tank at the McDonald Reserve, Coburg, off-take structures from the Harding Street main drain, a local council drain and connection to the stormwater treatment plant.
In the functional design stage a stormwater flow survey has been conducted and used to calibrate the hydraulic model. The last 20 years of rainfall data has been used to test the reliability of the project through recent drought periods.
