Moravej M, Renouf M, Kenway S and Urich C (2022) What roles do architectural design and on-site water servicing technologies play in the water performance of residential infill? in Water Research Vol. 213, Article 118109, 15 April 2022.
- Business-as-usual infill development severely increases stormwater discharge (44%) and imported water (85%).
- Alternative designs can achieve 141% increase in population density with only 21% increase in stormwater discharge and 64% increase in imported water.
- Architectural design is up to 3 times more influential than water servicing technologies
