Congratulations to Professor Ana Deletic from the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities, Monash University, on winning this year's Victoria Prize for physical sciences. The award recognises her pioneering work in water conservation and water quality. This includes the development of green storm-water harvesting technologies to make better use of urban water run-off for stream protection and human consumption, contributing to the creation of more liveable and cooler cities.

Professor Ana DeleticHer work, beginning in the 1990s, has resulted in industry partnerships across the world and new technologies being adopted in Australia, Israel, Singapore, New Zealand, the UK and France.
