Industry Glossary

One of the exciting new subcommittees formed under Stormwater NSW is the R&D subcommittee. Currently the R&D team consist of; Peter Bennett, Mathew Lewis, Harout Tcherkezian, Eric Love, and Martin Ryzak and is open to all Stormwater NSW members. Our mission statement is:


"The mission of the Research and Development Stormwater NSW subcommittee is to provide technical support to the members of Stormwater NSW relating to all things stormwater. The R&D subcommittee fosters capacity building and stormwater excellence by working with Councils, consultants, contractors, developers, educators, authorities, and product suppliers, to create a safe, fulfilling, and enriching environment for stormwater development."


One of the tools we are formulating is an industry derived glossary of useful stormwater terms. The document can be viewed by clicking the download icon below and is considered a working draft where members and non members alike are encouraged to submit their terms, and/or comments for consideration and inclusion into the draft. The success of such a document and future tools will be reflective of the level of involvement from everyone, so please take the time to have and look and make a submission.
