Introduction
 

This presentation will provide an overview of the Stormwater NSW Operations and Maintenance Manual and how the manual assists the engineering operations of asset managers.  Areas covered in the manual include:
 

1. Key failure mechanisms in stormwater treatment measures
2. Monitoring and general asset management
3. Overview of specific types of treatment measures, e.g. pits, ponds, permeable pipes, etc.
4. Waste management and disposal including dewatering
5. Audit processes for stormwater management measures
6. Rectification of asset failures
7. Extension of existing coverage of “green assets” to include proprietary systems
 
This presentation will provide a general overview of the manual, the processes behind its development, and how its use will help practitioners improve maintenance outcomes.
