Abstract/Summary Integrated urban water management (IUWM) is an emerging approach for water utilities to plan and manage urban water systems to minimize their impact on the natural environment, to maximize their contribution to economic vitality, and to engender overall community improvement. It considers All parts of the water cycle The full range of demands for water The full range of water supplies over time The practices that can provide water fit for purpose both in quality and quantity and reduce demand for water The relative sustainability of water service provision Local context and stakeholder views The scale, engineering, and functional aspects of the water system The means by which transition from current practice can be achieved This project will refine, extend, and tailor an IUWM approach developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia) to enable its application by U.S. and Australian water, wastewater, and storm water utilities for town or city level IUWM.
