The model for urban stormwater improvement conceptualisation – is designed to help urban stormwater professionals visualise possible strategies to tackle urban stormwater hydrology and pollution impacts. The model has been developed by eWater and the latest version can be downloaded from their site. A free trial version is available to download from their site.

NSW MUSIC Modelling Guideline
The Sydney Metropolitan Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is very pleased to release the Draft NSW MUSIC Modelling Guidelines for comment and review, which is MUSIC Version 4 compliant.
To develop a MUSIC Model that sufficiently represents the area likely to be developed, a series of steps need to be conducted, both within and outside the modelling environment. These draft guidelines provide the necessary detail to undertake these steps.
Without exception, the Sydney Metropolitan CMA accepts no responsibility for the application of these draft guidelines and/or the derived modelling results, outcomes or outputs.
This draft document is a guide only, it is strongly recommended professional experience and judgment must still be applied to ensure the modelling is done in a logical fashion.
Comments on the draft are still open and a form can be downloaded here Draft NSW MUSIC Modelling Guideline – Feedback Form
