In Australia, such schemes are emerging at a regional level, most notably the Rouse Hill Reclaimed Water Scheme, where treated wastewater is reticulated back to residential area through a separate pipeline for garden irrigation, toilet flushing, and laundry use. A Changing Attitude to Urban Drainage The management of stormwater runoff in conventional urban developments has been driven by an attitude that reflects the view that stormwater runoff has no value as a useful resource, is environmentally benign, and adds little to the amenity (aesthetic, recreation, education, etc) of an urban environment.

As expected, organisms' concentrations from high-density residential areas were the highest. There was strong seasonal effect on organisms' survival at all land uses, with the lowest concentrations observed during winter. Collection of real data is important in selecting treatments, including BMPs, for a specific land use and, thus, achieving effective protection of the watershed and its receiving waters. Association of the collected data with specific land uses and climatic conditions makes it easily transferable to other geographical areas and applicable for use in models as well.
