Renew Solutions was approached by Blacktown City Council to audit and report on their primary treatment Pollution Control Devices (PCDs).

What did the project involve?

  1. Auditing GPTs
    • Using advanced technologies to locate, identify, and assess GPTs
    • Assess the condition of GPTs to identify defects and other issues affecting asset performance
    • Identify and implement cost-effective solutions to rectify defects and other issues identified in audits
  2. Analysing contributing catchments
    • Using combined GIS and hydrological modelling software to characterise the contributing catchment of each asset to estimate pollutant loads and expected cleaning requirements
  3. Developing Best Practice Management Guidance
    • Develop asset-specific best practice management procedures based on audit data and contributing catchment analyse

Information collected will serve as a baseline upon which Blacktown City Council intend to effectively manage their assets into the future, ensuring the best stormwater outcomes are achieved.
