Water Sensitive Urban Design - (WSUD)

KFW have expertise and practical experience in Water Sensitive Urban Design for greenfield subdivision development and infill developments.

We were early adopters of the MUSIC# Model which was developed by the Cooperative Research Centre for Catchment Hydrology (now e-Water).

MUSIC# is a computer package which can be used to select and assess the effectiveness of stormwater treatment measures to reduce the impact on our creeks and lakes.

MUSIC# uses continuous rainfall records (daily or 6 minute)

KFW have undertaken WSUD design and analysis for land development projects in local catchments and in Sydney metropolitan council areas such as City of Botany Bay City and Blacktown City.
