Case study – Burnside B-Pods, Catch it, keep it, use it: Burnside City Council’s B-Pod stormwater retention cells
In 2008, as part of Council’s commitment to water sensitive urban design (WSUD), the City of Burnside began installation of a small-scale, subsurface retention systems for capturing stormwater. These systems were designed to deliver water to soil and young trees via infiltration, and to reduce the speed and peak volumes of stormwater flowing to urban creeks.  See full details in our Case Study.
