While no one individual could hold all the answers to the MG project, it could be of a great help if we share our professional experiences and relevant information that could become a small 'building block' in the formation of the strategy (which I believe is the step 1). Whether this information is (fully/partially) utilized by the project steering committee is a secondary issue, - as long as it provokes (and/or streamlines/directs) a thoughts process of those involved in the decision making. With all of the complexity of the MG project - it is likely to require some litter cleaning mechanisms and while there is really no shortage of those - the assessment and validation matrix will need to be established by the steering committee, potentially with the field/laboratory tests. Hence a few links to the work in this area could be of some use: 1.0  Independent verification scheme for stormwater treatment devices report link: http://www.stormwater.asn.au/images/IVS_road_map_discussion_paper_draft_5_July_13.pdf 2.0  Literature review on testing & validation of gross pollutant traps report link: http://www.stormwater.asn.au/projects-a-advocacy/75-literature-review-on-performance-testing-approaches-of-gross-pollutant-traps If the harvesting and re-use of stormwater could assist in the management of the stormwater run off into the Ganga River then the following document could be of use: 3.0  Guidelines for stormwater harvesting on Melbourne Water drainage assets link: http://www.melbournewater.com.au/Planning-and-building/Forms-guidelines-and-standard-drawings/Documents/Technical_guidelines_-_stormwater_harvesting.pdf All of those document and more references to integrated water management can also be found here: http://www.ivwater.com.au/integrated-water-management.php Hope to see this great project succeeding!
