Lee, Shinyi, Dur , Fatih, & Yigitcanlar , Tan (2009) An indexing model for stormwater quality in the Gold Coast. In Proceedings of the 4th State of Australian Cities Conference (SOAC 2009), University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia.
In the era of climate change sustainable urban development and in particular provision of sustainable urban infrastructure has become a key concept in dealing with environmental challenges. This paper discusses issues affecting stormwater quality and introduces a new indexing model that is to be used in evaluation of the stormwater quality in urban areas. The model has recently been developed and will be tested in a number of pilot projects in the Gold Coast, one of the fastest growing and environmentally challenged cities of Australia.
