Multi-objective optimisation of environmental outcomes in urban water systems

This project forms part of a broader research program with The University of Melbourne and Melbourne Water that aims to test advances in real-time control technology (RTC) to control a network of small- and large-scale rainwater and stormwater storage. The aim is to simultaneously deliver water supply, flood protection, and delivery of flow regimes into waterways that match the ecological requirements of important aquatic species, such as the platypus.
