Principles and planning opportunities for community scale systems of water and waste management
Newman, P. and Mouritz, M. (1994) Principles and planning opportunities for community scale systems of water and waste management. In: Workshop papers on localised treatment and recycling of domestic wastewater, 30 November, Murdoch University, Western Australia pp. 89-110.
There are social, economic and environmental reasons for shifting towards a more localised, community scale system of water and waste management in our cities. This paper outlines some of these and provides an historical context as to how we have reached the need for this change. A case study illustrates how a localised system can be better on all three parameters. It is suggested that the best opportunity for achieving localised systems is to utilise the planning process with its links to community, regulatory powers for environmental management and metropolitan scale strategic processes.
