Stormwater and Groundwater - Development Effects - Part 2 (ON-LINE COURSE)

Overview

This new online course ‘Stormwater and Groundwater – Development Effects (Part 2)’ is about the effects that development activities have on the water environment. If you plan, design or construct development projects this online course will help you understand their short and long-term effects.

Whenever a development occurs, or infrastructure is built or maintained, these activities can have flow-on effects on surface and ground waters. When you understand the features of the site and receiving environment that you learn about in Part 1, the next step is to identify the development activities that will be carried out and their potential effects.

This online course shows you how the water environment can be affected by discharges from development and construction activities. It includes illustrated case studies with audio narration to explain the environmental effects.
