Water Technology was engaged by Baw Baw Shire Council to design and model a proposed combined Retarding Basin (RB) and Wetland (WL) located north of Stoddarts Road, Warragul. This proposed RB/WL forms part of Council’s overall Development Contributions Plan for the Shire. The project included the design of a retardation system consisting of two storages connected in series, three sediment ponds treating a proposed development and the greater catchments flows, one wetland as well as the realignment of an unnamed waterway. A hydrological RORB model was built for the Stoddarts Road catchment in order to design the size and characteristics of the retarding basin. MUSIC was used to size the stormwater WSUD treatment assets before preparing the design drawing for submission to Council. Figure 4 4 shows the Stoddarts Road Wetland detailed design drawing. An Initial ANCOLD assessment was undertaken for the retarding basin infrastructure as part of the design.
