Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project, covering 480 hectares that will be home to 80,000 residents and 80,000 jobs across sectors including advanced manufacturing, engineering, design and creative industries by 2050. It’s planned to be Australia’s largest Green Star Community.
The Victorian Government recently launched the Fishermans Bend Water Sensitive City Strategy, the largest water sensitive urban design project in Australia which will facilitate development, reduce pollution, improve climate resilience and boost biodiversity.
While it’s a joint initiative, the Government specifically called out the smart rainwater tanks and a water recycling plant in development by South East Water.
Speaking about the importance of the project Charlie Littlefair General Manager Liveable Water Solutions said we’re helping create a water sensitive community that helps secure Melbourne’s liveability.
“Using life size innovation and proven technology, we’ll be solving local challenges with local solutions that reduce demand on drinking water supplies. Through the use of precinct water recycling plant, smart rainwater tanks, network sensors and digital meters we’ll harness all sources of water available - drinking, recycled and rainwater.
“The advanced technology will also provide real time data to customers, giving them greater control of their bill and how they use water. We want to show that there’s a better way to use water at home, without losing the health and liveability that water provides” added Charlie.
“Using life size innovation and proven technology, we’ll be solving local challenges with local solutions that reduce demand on drinking water supplies. ”
