Water sensitive urban design wsud
Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) design, planning and management of South Africa’s towns and cities

  • Multi-disciplined approach to urban water management aimed at managing the urban water cycle in a more sustainable manner so as to improve water security (Wong, 2006).

  • Considers the environment in conjunction with infrastructure planning, design and management at the earliest possible stage of any decision-making process (McAlister, 2007).

Descriptive understanding of wsud
Descriptive understanding of WSUD design, planning and management of South Africa’s towns and cities

“…mitigating water scarcity, improving water quality, thereby protecting ecosystems, through the development of water sensitive urban areas (for all) that are sustainable, resilient and adaptable to change, while simultaneously being a place where people want to live….”

Wsud principles strategies
WSUD principles / strategies design, planning and management of South Africa’s towns and cities

  • Sustainable water supply options

  • water conservation / demand management

  • alternative water sources, e.g. rainwater / stormwater harvesting

  • aquifer storage

  • Wastewater minimisation

  • quality improvement

  • use of treated wastewater / recycled water

  • Stormwater management

  • SUDs (Sustainable Urban Drainage)

  • enhancement of amenity and biodiversity
